The depressing thing with plastic waste is that we had the infrastructure to re-use packaging in every way, and we demolished it. From the milk-man who took the empty bottles back to returnable beverage bottles, and people taking their own packaging to the grocer to put foodstuffs in, be it cheese, olives, beans or whatever.

Now we have to build the infrastructure and the mindset again. Before it's too late.

@qwazix Yes! Not only that, but communities planned to make most amenities walkable, bikeable, or available by delivery. And a denser intercity railway network... We built our way into a mess with mass-manufactured cars and cheap gas. We didn't understand the costs... and are still having trouble understanding in the US, apparently.
