Re: Environmental concerns

When I first came to Turkey in 183 there were no supermarkets, even in the large cities. We used to buy food from the local shop (bakkal), chickens and meat were weighed and put into greaseproof paper. You took a pan to the bakkal, he would 'tare' the balance and put your yoghurt into your own pan. We bought (and still do) Efes in bottles, there were no cans. As time went on the bakkal (that is also the name of the shopkeeper) used to proudly show me the 'progress' or Turkey (chicken in polystyrene trays covered in clingfilm, beer in cans. I did argue with him even at that time, that this was a backward step. Of course I did not persuade him, but he gave up trying to impress me. I used that bakkal for 4 years.

I used to make a few bob taking old newspapers to our chippy

But I wonder if the use of plastics will eventually be banned in the same way that asbestos was banned

I can't believe how long it took to ban asbestos in UK houses. I looked into it recently and was shocked (1999). If they could put veggies in paper bags in the past why can't we do it now? Sod the hygene obsessives. 'We'll all eat a peck'o muck afore we die'

These processes were considered time consuming and unhygienic and of course were not suitable for the supermarket operations. If you go further back produce came straight from the land.
Progress was slow and gradual up to the 20th century but accelerated through that century. I wonder if mankind will see the end of this century.
This world wouldn`t miss mankind....

Re: Environmental concerns

We recently had a visit from a major Japanese corporation that volunteered to manage our waste fill sites without charge.

They wanted to process the fill and extract useful materials for their own use.

But our beloved municipality declined the offer

Re: Environmental concerns

I read things like this:-

Turkey to promote ?green future? at China Expo - Latest News

It sounds great, so does the 'zero waste' project to be announced in Jordan. Yesterday we saw an air conditioned bus stop in our local provincial capital. How do these projects tie together? When I spoke to a Turkish friend about it, he claimed it was just another pre-election project. What kind of future are we trying to show to Joe public?

Re: Environmental concerns

If you think you personally want to make a difference and you have already cut down on plastic bags and banished wet wipes face/body etc which is just synthetic fibres, plastic that end in our seas (and sewers Turkey not applicable )

Another easy change,if you want .... especially when you think back to your very first toothbrush plastic.... it will still be with us today...... in landfill or worse the sea..... then think of every toothbrush you have owned plastic., they also will still be with us, as they are non degradable for thousands of years .... then think of your family, how many plastic toothbrushes they use ....especially as they promote changing them every 3 month ........if you change and got someone else to change what a difference .... we have. its , good idea and a small part in helping the environment for your children or grandchildren ....

Its not as if their isn't a cheap alternative Zero Waste Bamboo toothbrushes with recyclable bristles you can buy them on e bay for £4 for ten or Amazon I think...................

Re: Environmental concerns

I watched BBC David Attenborough prog this week. Surprising lack of detail that I expect from him - lots of headlines and sound bites - crying children and apocalyptic archive footage - but didn't learn much. I normally trust what he says, but even he needs to include some strong content rather than just Henny-Penny doom-mongering; I am not a climate change denier, but I like to see facts argued sensibly.
