This is undoubtedly the most important article I have read all year. I have been wrestling with these concepts myself and to read someone else put them into such a clear and well-researched article is a gift. Once you have seen how much waste, single-use plastic and disposable everything surrounds us, it is horrific. How do we get these concepts that you speak of as “post-disposable” into the hands of the people who really have the power to change things? It is true that change starts with each one of us as individuals, but where does the true groundswell of change start making a measurable impact? I look forward to exploring the materials in UnSchool, as mentioned at the end of your article.
