All good ideas. And I totally get the jaded part, believe me, I totally get it.
In reality, some companies do share identical packaging. I actually have one in my hand…an antioxidant drink from Whole Foods which is perfectly identical to the same container of Gatorade. At least something is happening, however little it is. Just like I recycle every shred I can, try to save water (I’m on a well), and I try to reduce consumption too, which I applaud and respect you for too.
I just wish and hope for more that can be done. Which is why I do support efforts however I can, whether I’m a direct participant or through providing what support I can.
