Seems to me they could solve the problem if they simply recycled the containers and such. It is all recyclable material, after all. Polystyrene is recycled quite a bit by the plastics industry. All it takes is for people to make the effort. I'm not a green person by any means. But common sense doesn't take that much effort.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

This is a spam question; the live link just hasn't shown up yet. This Destiny person and that other guy who I can't remember his name keep posting stuff about "disposable tableware." They make it sound like real questions but if you pay attention you can tell it's not, it's all ads.

Report the buggers and maybe AOL will do something about it one day.
