The idea of brand name social responsibility

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.

What is the social responsibility of Subway, Burger King, Spring, Coors Lite and 5 Hour Energy when it comes to packaging? I don't know the answer, but it gets old picking up their packaging day after day.

What is the social responsibility of Subway, Burger King, Sprite, Coors Lite and 5 Hour Energy when it comes to packaging? I don’t know the answer, but it gets old picking up their packaging day after day.

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.

About Dave Bradley (254 Articles)
I'm the one behind two totally unrelated blogs; one on 15 years of writing a weekly letter to my kids (plus other recipients), the other on my localized environmental responsibility. I'm a writer by trade and both endeavors are accepted practice for me. As for the letters, my adult children Ellen and Reid may have seen letters as corny at one point, but it's accepted practice for them, too, to find something in their mailbox other than bills and junk mail. Email and texting don't do a lot for me for a lot of different reasons. Snail mail has its place in the communicative world so as long as they keep selling stamps, I'm buying. As for 'Pick Up Your Path' and the environment, I advocate what citizens can do themselves to take a direct hand in their neighborhood environment. But Pick Up Your Path is also a general environmental blog. It may be largely about litter and trash, but both of those are just one element of the total environmental picture.
