I learned yesterday that plastic recycling is a huge myth that was more or less created by the oil industry so they could sell more plastics.

I guess in the 80’s they were getting hella pushback and the plastics industry could have fallen out since ppl were upset by the garbage it made. So they created a huge advertising campaign to promote recycling through the 90’s.

Now they are promising to recycle better by 2050, using mostly the same claims from the 90’s.

> If the only thing @reproutopia had written was “All that was solid melted into ganache,” that would have been fine and trenchant commentary on Is It Cake? But there is so much more to her essay than that.
