Posted in: Can Japan end its love affair with plastic? See in context

Not in the near future. lived there for almost 10 years; and I'd have to say that even though Japan is most certainly guilty of overpackaging goods using plastic, most Japanese citizens religiously practice waste sorting and proper garbage disposal. I was most impressed with how the community I lived in disposed of pet bottles- separating the bottle caps and wrap-around bottle labels before crushing and disposing of the pet bottles. They also take the effort to fold and cut large paper boxes that need to be disposed. I also appreciate the fact that there is regular schedule of garbage pick-up (and pick-up point) set by the local government.
