A friend sent me this.  She writes for them and is Elizabeth in the comments.

 

What do you think?  Plastic propaganda?  Or do they mean it..? I was going to share it on facbook but didn´t want friends to see.

Thanks for sharing this!  I went to the “reported” link in your friend’s article and there’s a link in the source info to the entire report, which I’ve downloaded to read & digest.  It will be interesting to see concrete examples of those 140 “projects” that the ACC reports on.  Everyone should do this and decide for themselves whether this is truly green or just “green-washing”! http://www.americanchemistry.c…..ments.html

I´ve just downloaded it…  Gees!  Bit of reading.  Bit much reading!

 

I need to read it properly, but from scanning through it´s all “anti-littering” and re-cylcing. (which of course can´t be done)

 

I´d be really interest to see what you make of it.

 

(my friend didn´t write the article, but commented a lot on it)
