    Default misconceptions?

    I am not totally against living but I am talking about those who think that they are leading a green lifestyle. I know it sounds confusing but a few people buy green products in additional to their normal needs. I have been greatly bothered by such people who think that consumption of green products is green living. I firmly believe that the key is to consume less.







    Absolutely right, and no kids for a while, OK? So many, the majority, are selfish and dumb uncaring things below human, or what human should be----sustainable.

    For me, buying close to home, from local farmers is one of the "greenest" things you can do....







    That helps a lot, but being all on non-emissions power and driving a high mileage vehicle, and especially no kids is what is really green.

    Lots of people think that if something is recycleable that it is "green." But is it actually recycled? They also forget about the reduce and reuse part, which come first.

    I think those who believe recycling is actually doing any good is mistaken. Although the efforts of all are admirable.








    Wrong, recycling is part of the whole green life we must live to survive. The biggest one is reducing emissions from all sources, and having no kids for 3/4 of a generation.

    Consumers need to demand packaging that is not oversized that way it would be more greener. Only if shoppers would shop with canvas totes then I could say that it would save a lot of plastic going to the landfills.

    The facts are that to reuse materials that are recycled cost companies more than to just put out 'new'. Most of what we put in recycle bins ends up in our landfills;








    Only in some corrupt places, not everywhere.....

    But at least they are reducing their impact. A completely lifestyle change may be drastic to most people who aren't used to living completely Green, so any step in the right direction should be praised and encouraged. Information on how to further delve into the Green life is also beneficial to anyone wanting to take the right steps.

    A complete lifestyle change is what is needed, along with a moral change and spiritual change to where sustainability is a holy word and way of life. Your little steps won't do the job and that is why you are banned, and for spamming.

    Being an engineer, and knowing the facts about what harms the environment I have long had thoughts on this subject.

    Is doing my part doing any good when you know that others are doing what they do. Like doing the ocean with trash bags, bottles, cans etc. etc. and big oil companies doing the ocean on top of that. I feel we should all be doing ourselves a favor and policing all sonsab_____s that are caught poluting the ocean. Without the ocean we are truly doomed. No landfill is going to save you.
