Would reusing packaging be better than recycling? I recall a time when many bottles (pop, beer, milk) were reused. I expect arguments against based on economics and logistics. Isn’t this where we expect governments to show their worth and work for the good of all? If there was a standard set of jar and bottle sizes to make them interchangeable, worldwide, across many suppliers and products wouldn’t that solve much of the logistical problem? So the same jar might contain Scottish jam one week, French pickle next, and Australian peaches after. Too much transport? Surely, that just encourages us to use local produce or pay the price: even more ecologically sound.
