“Depending upon the accounting, approximately 4.3 or 17.6 percent of the plastic bags produced each year are recycled. The 4.3 number is the 2010 EPA number for plastic number 2 bags. These are what you think of as the typical grocery bag.”

“For example, Japan is far better than we are at recycling plastic. They recycle a very respectable 77 percent of plastic consumed. Which makes our 7 to 8 percent percent look pretty shameful. Japan’s recycled plastic is sent overseas to make toys and used in production of textiles, bottles, packaging, industrial parts, and a whole host of other products. Sweden also steps up the game when it comes to using waste as a fuel. In fact, they’ve become so efficient at converting waste into fuel that only 4 percent of their trash winds up in landfills. They even started running out of trash to convert, and began importing around 800,000 tons of garbage per year to create power and heat for homes.”

“Earl Silas Tupper, the inventor of Tupperware, was a pretty intense guy and was absolutely determined to become a millionaire. He was also, it turned out, kind of a dirtbag. Earl worked as a tree surgeon in Massachusetts by day and spent his evenings filling up notebooks full of inventions—some which were absolutely ridiculous, like the fish boat, which was basically a harness that allowed a really big fish to be attached to the bottom of a boat to propel it around.”
