Yesterday was America Recycles Day, which isn't a bad thing as an idea -- certainly, more recycling is better than less -- but do we really need a day for it? Last year, Lloyd called recycling "bullsh*t" as a big picture solution, and reiterated it this year, and he's right. Do we really need a day dedicated to reminding us to recycle? Isn't it time to move beyond the inefficient model that supports single-use and disposable items like plastic bags and bottled water? Can't we do better than this?
