A few weeks ago the company that picks up our trash went out of business. The trash began to pile up. We burned some and tried to recycle the plastic, cans and bottles. It was amazing how fast that stuff accumulated. There's just two much plastic and paper used in packaging things. I can now sympathize with the tree huggers who lament the loss of the rain forests. A couple of acres are mowed down every month just to supply my house with trash. Here's an idea that might alleviate the problem. Not every product you buy needs to be packaged. When you go to the grocery store things like flour definitely need to be in a bag, but couldn't you just fill your pockets full of beans and be charged by the pocketfulls? How about taking some old socks to the sporting goods store and filling them with tennis balls? Just a thought. Just trying to make this world a better place for you and me.
