Recycling is a Lie? || NPR Article Discussion

Recently I read an article on NPR about recycling that got me very…huffy? Angry? Frustrated? Hurt? Upset? I don’t know exactly how to describe how it made me feel, but it wasn’t a great feeling. It’s called How Big Oil Misled The Public Into Believing Plastic Would Be Recycled, and I’m kind of embarrassed that it made me as upset as it did. Part of me feels like I should have known better (because I’m a cynic) and part of me feels silly for believing that anyone would try to make recycling an efficient process.
