I had thought that we had a robust recycling system.

In trying to find some background information to match my memory, I found alot of information that mirrors alot of what we are experiencing today.

This is information relating to Victoria, Australia.
There is much hoo-haa regarding sustainability, recycling, repurposing and so forth.
Trawling the internet, I found almost a mirroring to the statements being made today.

Let's action and not just lip service.

We're learning. Habits are hard to change. Hopefully, we move beyond just placating gestures.

My own experience is that there is so much plastic in most of the household items that we buy.

There are many steps to try and replace product packaging with new, "U Beut" products that adds a level of sustainability.

I may do a post another day about packaging innovations.
