Is being green a luxury?


At my home we have two ordinary thrash cans and then we have a “green” thrash can. We pay a monthly fee for the green one.

Like everyone else we are now sifting through our books, seeing where we can cut back. I’ve drunk a whole lot less coffee lately and been to fewer movie theaters for sure.

If we cancel the contract for the green thrash can we save enough money annually to pay for four months of heat and electricity.

Can green be a priority in an economic crisis? Or is it a luxury?

Take it away Kermit.

    You are obviously running for the leadership of the (green) Progressive Party!

    yes and the recycling companies also resell the materials they charge you for and make profits there too…
    In Egypt and most ‘Third World’ countries there is no need to recycle because people use practically 100% of ‘garbage’ and cottage industries have developed that countless people make a living from, not big corporations, but ordinary poor people that we in the west have become too ‘civilised’ to respect…
    Maybe when the financial meltodown is finished we’ll be doing the same thing.
    But who will be throwing away stuff?
