The number of times I have been sitting in some cafe and have said to the staff or even the owners, Gee, guys. Since you have all of this organic stuff and social justice ideology going on…. wouldn’t it be great to provide actual glasses instead of plastic cups at your water station? Imagine if you even maybe offered people a little discount for bringing their own containers for a takeaway? Or: Don’t you reckon your local cash and carry would get in corn-starch takeaway cups if you asked them? They’re easily available. The number of times owners and staff have said, Gee, yes. That is a really great idea. We should do that. The number of times they have actually acted on it. The number of disposable everythings sprouting from the council bins outside each venue. Are we doomed purely by our own selfishness? And not just us but every living thing bar certain bacteria and fungi and cockroaches?
