Grist posted this piece from designer Max Temkin, and we felt it was worth sharing because we’re right in the thick of our waste less 30 Day GOOD Challenge.
Take that, plastic spoons, you jerks.
The people buying the plastic spoons don’t have to do anything but buy it and bring it home. And the effort made by the people who manufacture the plastic spoon costs less than the price of the plastic spoons.
The efforts can’t be compared.
I’ve got to say that if you feel this way about plastic spoons then you should feel this way about everything you purchase. Well, most things at least. Part of me thinks we should try to go back to a very home-made society, but another part of me wants to put a man on Mars or cure horrible diseases. I like Max Temkin, but a lot of his stuff seems to have oddball logic. It makes sense, but then if used in every situation the world would fall backwards 1500 years or would advance in a very vanilla ice cream sort of way.
