Lack of critical thinking

Jun 8, 2017 | Consumption, EcoJustice, Plastic, Pollution, Waste

In the future we may come up with the technology to mine our landfills. But, for now, we go to war for oil and freely dump tons of it everyday back into massive pits in the ground. Minerals are mined at the great cost of child and slave labor, yet placed in technology designed for ‘planned obsolescence.’ Current extraction and use mechanisms harm humans just as deeply as the environment.  If we were better stewards of the resources we have, designing out waste and creating circular pathways for materials to flow, we could reduce social and ecological imbalances, even war.
