Here is a good start. If the environmentalist in the West can't or won't fix the problem that they've created, then maybe the second and third world will just get fed up with those snobs and start sending things back. So how recyclable is the stuff that you separate and put into different bins, or gets picked up at your curbside and separated buy garbage contractors?

Again this is just one example of environmentalists being worse than even corporate interests. Personally I would like the intelligent corporate people to get into the environmental business, and give all the environmental idiots to the corporations. Not necessarily a fair trade, but the environment would be much better off for it.
Poor Matteo. I don't know what pseudo environmentalist bogey man frightened you as a child. Did they try and recycle one of your toys?
And yes blaming and complaining about someone else again for the state of the planet. Did you know Matteo that environmentalists are not all the same? Some people even claim to be environmentalists when they are not! (Shock, horror).
Did you know that recycling is the last choice of the environmentalist creed? The order is Reduce, ReUse and then Recycle as a last resort. For me there's another R word in there, Repair. (I'm reasonably good at that). Here's hoping the Sion electric car chooses the correct R words in the right order. It's got some lined up already. It's ReUsing an existing factory
However recycling is often the choice of your "intelligent corporate people" because it means they can avoid responsibility for that part of a products life. In my country and many others, the recycling is often left to an underfunded Local Government sector while the corporate manufacturers blithely carry on producing more product of poor longevity as they don't like the Reduce word, especially in the same sentence as the Profit word. Oh and they definitely don't like the ReUse word as it doesn't fit with the Buy word.
You see Matteo I think you've been fed a line and like a good parrot you keep repeating it. I may be an environmentalist but I don't think I fit your narrow, very narrow definition. I have run my own businesses for many years working in many fields of endeavour. Currently my participation in this forum is because I sell and import kitesurfing equipment and I'm a keen user of this equipment as well.
On the Heavy Equipment Forums https://www.heavyequipmentforums.com/
I participate because I own and use heavy equipment. You know, excavators, backhoes, trucks that sort of stuff which I own and use for everything from house site preparation to soil conservation work, asset protection zone clearing to demolition work. I even use a backhoe to dig my veggie garden
Oh and I forgot, I do a little recycling here as well, with my rock crushing plant. I put demolition concrete and bricks into my crusher and out the other end comes a very nice roadbase or compactable fill.
And in another compartment of my life I'm the guy that sells IT equipment like computers and stuff which I also troubleshoot, Repair and upgrade. (Note that Repair word and the upgrade word is almost the same as ReUse).
So now that you know "environmentalists" are a bit hard to categorise as you do as the evil idiots, and that "intelligent corporates" may in many cases be a contradiction in terms, I'll try again. Matteo what are you doing to make the world a better place?
No squibbing it this time, come clean, no blaming and complaining, and let us know you're flesh and blood and not a corporate apologist bot loose on the Internet.
