We'd never need to buy paper if we pulped and recycled junk mail and receipts. We'd never need to buy dirt if we composted all our food waste. We'd never need to buy anything made of plastic or aluminum if we melted and molded them ourselves. We'd need to buy much less wood if we collected all the discarded pallets
You ever think about how we throw away the stuff they make airplanes out of? After buying it for a buck?
@socalledunitedstates you know how many massive aircraft junkyards just sitting abandoned in the open there are in your country? so fucking jealous

@socalledunitedstates the problem with trying to salvage aluminum foil is that often (at least how i use it, anyway) it has baked-on food, and trying to clean that without absolutely destroying it is a challenge
@starrycosmos I was referring to cans!
@socalledunitedstates ohh, i forgot those are aluminum too. carry on, then 😅
