We have never used more products than we do in today’s society. Not only are we creating a ton of waste through the items, which we use and consume, but the packaging we use to hold and keep these items also adds to the amount of garbage we are creating. While carryout bags, paper bags and paper sacks can be a big help in our lives, we mcm outlet may not really need to use so much, and it is time our way of life changed to not need so many of these wasteful products.
If you think about how many pieces of rubbish you create each time you go to McDonald’s, your conclusions can be staggering. You are usually using something to hold the bag, something for the burger, the chips, the drink, and the placemat. Then there is the straw, napkins and sundae. Not only does each person who comes in use most of these items, but you also have to consider the amount of waste they are creating out the back as they cook all the things we consume. Now consider how mcm bags outlet much waste is being produced by this McDonald’s outlet in one day, and consider the many thousands of outlets there are throughout the world. We are slowly turning out world into one big garbage can, and places to put it all are starting to run out.
There are now many trash piles situated in the oceans of the world. These are uninhabitable by marine life, and are put there solely as a result of human behavior. It seems amazing that we have been able to block this issue out of our minds, but the realities of dealing with these issues seem to be too much for us to deal with.
You might think that recycling will mcm handbags sale solve this problem, but there is a problem with that also. One is that not everything can be recycled. The other is that in the course of recycling something, oil or coal will have to be used to power the recycling plants, these minerals, of course, create their own, non recyclable waste products.
It is a good idea to start cutting down on the level of waste we use everyday. We can do this by not using plastic bags or unneeded products and by not shopping at places like McDonald’s which create a ridiculous amount of waste. But these will not solve the deeper problem, that we have become a society that is happy to waste so much of our natural resources. What is needed is not just a superficial alteration to the way things are done, but a fundamental shift in our attitude towards nature. Such a shift occurring purely of our own volition seems unlikely, and there is a great possibility that it may take an environmental disaster before people wake up and realize the damage that is being done to the world.
Improvements to the environment can be made, but the laws within which we live have been shown to be ineffective in protecting the environment, and it is time we stood up and demanded real protection for the places in which we live.
Connor R. Sullivan recently purchased several cases of carryout containers for his restaurant. His wife thought it was a good idea to order cases of paper bags with the restaurant’s logo on it.
