I think there is this perception in the rest of the world that Japan is this green friendly country, but this definitely is not true. Japanese society is able to mascade its mentality for wastefulness with efficient techology and adherence to maximizing a limited amount of space. In reality , the Japanese only seem to adapt somewhat green policies when it is in their economic and material interest. But we are never going to save the planet if the movtivation for our actions are predominately determined by economic-rational choice decisions. Jeff-Lee is absolutely correct when he refered to recycling as merely a bandaid approach. Going green is not purchasing "green" friendly products or making sure that plastic waste goes into the correct rubbish bin. Living a "green" life is living a simple life; less consumption, being content with little material possesions and education.
