Plastics producers can create corn-based products, based on the assumption
that the packaging will go into the compost heap? Would it be ethical to
allocate fertile land to the production of plastics and later fuel? Plastics
producers can choose packaging with high sensitivity to uv rays. Are we
going to put our rubbish out to dry & decompose in the sun? Plastics
producers can choose standard polypropylene (PP) or polyethylene, but that
assumes that the city council has a recycling system in place. It assumes
that consumers are willing to sort or pay for staff to sort for them. Do
cohousing communities lend themselves to greater degree of rubbish sorting?
