There was an interesting column in the New York Times last week that asked…

— are we really doing anything with all this recycling besides feeling better about the stuff we buy?

here’s another excerpt…

“Recycling “is good civic behavior,” said Samantha MacBride, an assistant professor of public affairs at Baruch College, City University of New York, but it’s oversold as a panacea to a whole host of environmental ills, from overflowing landfills to global warming. “I wouldn’t say that people who do recycling feel they’ve done everything they can by participating, but they think there’s a lot more being achieved than there actually is.”
