I agree wholeheartedly that we should be incinerating waste, especially paper and cardboard, which make nearly no sense to try to recycle. Send all that junk to a local steam plant, and recover the energy with minimal processing.
Greenwashing is a corporate occupation of great importance nowadays.
A little known fact about microplastics in the oceans, rivers and lakes is that roughly half is clothing fibers. Lint from washing clothes. And the micro fibers are the worst, as they are the most chemically active, toxin accumulators, and able to incorporate into living creatures.
Sure makes me question our reliance on manmade fibers, and our standard methods of sewage treatment, down the drain, and like magic, it’s not my problem any more…
