There are some things I don't understand.
Outdoor heaters. Battery operated rubbers (erasers). Electric photo frames. Toys that you ask children to scribble on, then you wash them. Over and over. Coffee snobs who drink out of paper cups and plastic lids, who drink while walking down the street because they are too busy and important to actually sit down to enjoy their coffee, and then throw the paper cups and plastic lids in the bin because they are too busy and important to wash a cup. That shopping guides contain advertorials for many new products and the ethical shopping guide is so much smaller, which implies that everything not in the ethical section is unethical, so why is it being promoted at all?
If we were TRYING to use up the world, this is how we would do it!
