proper dickhead behaviour this innit. make your protest but dont make the minimum wage workers in tesco spend the rest of their shift tidying up after it

Plastic waste is a serious issue and we could all do our bit to cut back.
However. however - i get really irked by people who need to broadcast that they live a ‘zero waste’ lifestyle and make a big smug deal out of it. ‘look at my wooden toothbrush’, that kind of carry-on.
Waste is a systemic issue more than a personal one (of course it’s both, but cutting down on personal waste is ultimately futile if nothing is being done on a systemic level.) so ultimately i can’t help seeing these things as an exercise in smugness. if you’re zero waste and you’re not broadcasting it, you’re probably ok though.


#12

there are some stats about commercial waste vs personal waste but i can’t be bothered digging them up. it’s ridiculous though


#13

there’s more difficult things to clean up than a pile of plastic packaging tbf

Big amongst retirees, DailyMail readers and Which? subscribers.

It’s a cause that’s something fairly superficial that will benefit the environment without having to make a significant sacrifice, or actually challenge the structures that cause global warming or environmental damage in the first place.


#15

I’d disagree with that, hearing what people around you are doing can be hugely influential


#16

where is it ok to protest?


#17

always going to be bad for poor working people isn’t it


#18

probably just private security firms or something


#19

There are loads of people that wouldn’t know about the issue or the alternatives if certain people didn’t broadcast it though.


#20

yeah probably. i’m probably talking bollocks here. but there is a type of person who just irks me along these lines
