Manufacturers have the right to deliver their goods to market. In all cases, it involves packaging.
I pick up a fair amount of that mishandled packaging.
That’s code for improper disposal. No doubt companies – McDonalds with its straws, Burger King and Subway with their cups, Budweiser and Miller Lite and Pepsi and Coca Cola with reduced metal in their cans – cut back on packaging material where and when they can, in part for cost reasons, and, hopefully, in part for environmental reasons.
My only gripe would be the non-recyclables: styrofoam, notably and plastics where paper might do. I have no answers. But we’ll work on it and push where we can for recyclables in all instances.
