It's Earth Day now. I'm just up late thinking. I rode the bus today for two hours. Did I affect change? Does it matter? All the plastic I recycle at home, companies throw away without thinking. To be quite honest I throw away so much at work as well.
Why do others not care? That's not it. As the status quo of my work area is now, we don't have the system in place. I hardly have time to finish all the routine tasks let alone sort the plastic from aluminum...and that's basic recycling. Systems are beautiful. I know it seems odd, but think of ecosystems and the intricate systems of biology. That said, we need more systems in place for the environment to make recycling easy and convenient, not a luxury for those who have time.
Tell me there is someone out there who cares, too. Enjoy your Earth Day 2010!
