The Survey Says… We Don’t Like Plastic Anymore. And We’re Willing to Pay for It!
A new UK survey shows that people care more about plastic than they do about saving money. Money is no object, anymore! It hasn’t been long since we wanted the cheapest stuff possible. And lots of it! This turnaround is unprecedented, proving once and for all that it’s all simply a question of getting people the right information.
Even though we’ve recently learned that cigarette butts and not plastics are the biggest environmental hazard, this is still good news for food manufacturers.
Now they can cut costs by getting rid of all their packaging. And raise their prices at the same time.
In addition to eliminating the costs of the raw materials that make up the packaging, they can cut out pricey ledger items like designers, copywriters, photographers, and so on. They can now just put the food on the shelf. This will greatly increase profits.
In case you’re wondering, this is why you do market research. Sometimes you uncover a gold mine!
Short Recycling Companies
They had a good run, the recycling companies. Short and sweet. But there’s no way to survive this. No wasteful and pointless packaging means no business. If you’ve been counting on them as part of your retirement portfolio, GET OUT NOW! Yesterday would have been better! But if you’re reading this, you’re on the cutting edge. It might not be too late!
The garbage patch’s days are numbered
Yep. They are starting to clean it up. We aren’t adding to it anymore. Soon it will be gone. A distant memory. It was nice knowing you!
