Opinion piece – Is recycling working?

A pile of glass recyclate

In nature there is no waste, rather each living thing serves a greater purpose than its own lifespan, and provides for the growth of other living things. A beautifully intricate and complex network of interactions between living things and the environment allows life to thrive on this planet. Humans, however do create waste, mountains of it every year. Corporations can only survive if they constantly expand production and market their goods effectively to create demand and profit, and the  trillion dollar global advertising industry is very effective at persuading us all to buy their goods.
