Thus I now have a total of four printers - in their original boxes stored in my shed. I have no idea what will become of them but I refuse to surrender a perfectly good machine to a landfill. A friend of mine just purchased a new laser printer simply because his last one stopped communicating with his computer and no amount of technical input from Staples technicians helped. What a frickin' waste.
what a waste: Indeed. Faster, cheaper manufacturing with plastics also reduces the quality of the items as well. They don' t last as long.......and are not meant to.
But if we address the plastic bags......(grocery etc.) seriously......it would be a good start
Bring your won bag .......kinda thing that many are doing now.I like the fact that most stores now ask if one NEEDS a bag and '/or charges for them ( at least where I reside)
