Recycling - Bull$%&$

... The Eight Myths of Recycling .... OK... you thought that recycling was good for the environment. So do many people. We feel good about recycling and wish we could do more... right? WRONG.

In the "Eight Myths of Recycling" author Daniel K. Benjamin explodes the myths that have been perpetuated on a national stage since 1985. For example: Recycling saves trees. There is absolutely no evidence that will save even one tree. Most of the paper used today in paper production is GROWN on tree farms, specifically for use in the paper industry. In fact we have three times more trees to day than we did in 1920. In other words, the market place saw a need and filled it through entrepreneurship.

You might also want to watch Penn and Teller's show Bullshit. They have a past episode that deals with this very issue. You can even find it archived on Search for "Pen and Teller The Truth of Recycling". There are three parts on YouTube. Be sure to watch all three.
