I read this on the forum before once but now there is more evidence.

"... made up of companies like Exxon, Chevron, Dow, DuPont and their lobbying and trade organizations in Washington.

Industry companies spent tens of millions of dollars on these ads and ran them for years, promoting the benefits of a product that, for the most part, was buried, was burned or, in some cases, wound up in the ocean."

johnyboy,

Please, please, go and get some psychiatric help, ASAP. Recycling is supposed to make you so much more pleased with your place in this world!

I was hoping some ecoterrorist would attack the " Chevron Phillips Chemical's new $6 billion plastic manufacturing plant rises from the skyline in Sweeny, Texas. Company officials say they see a bright future for their products as demand for plastic continues to rise." They could use the propaganda money for the clean up.

I still recycle but with less over thinking. Mainly throwing what I know for sure is good to go

I just put my recycle bin out to the curb. What a successful and pervasive bullshit campaign.
