Today I’ve got this Issue on my Nationstates (nationstates.net)
One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Recyclable
A recent study by some self-righteous college students revealed that an alarming number of recyclable items are being thrown into the garbage. In order to bring more attention to this issue, a handful of particularly dedicated environmentalists – calling themselves ‘Save Our Trash’ – are camping out in the dumpster behind your home. They claim that they will not leave until the government takes action.
I’ve encountered with 3 choices
1. “How can people care so little for Mother Earth?” grouses a grouchy, green-haired man named Oscar, who has taken up residence in one of your trash cans. “The government needs to do a hell of a lot more to inform people about the importance of recycling. You should throw everything you’ve got at the problem: public service announcements, sorting classes for the kids, bins in every conceivable place. You could even fine those lazy people who refuse to properly dispose of recyclables.”
2. “There’s no reason to punish CITIZEN when industry bears most of the blame for pollution,” suggests Kendall Ungar while struggling to open a hard plastic stay-fresh shell containing a pre-peeled banana. “By taxing inefficient manufacturers for all of this ridiculously excessive packaging, the government could discourage commercial waste and even make itself some money. Hey, an environmentalist policy that generates revenue – now there’s an idea.”
3. “Meh. Is this really such a big deal?” yawns city worker Bharatendu Cobblepot, finishing off his tea in a delicate porcelain cup, before throwing the whole thing into the nearest garbage can. “Being neurotic over trash just makes people unhappy and forces them to feel guilty about shopping. You should actually be encouraging people to throw stuff away without thinking too hard about it – a culture of disposable items drives consumption, which in turn makes for a strong economy. And that’s what matters.”
4. Dismiss the issue
