    If they want people to start recycling, they shouldn’t say that each 400 million plastic containers are not recycled. They should tell people how much other people DO recycle instead.

    No one recycles because recycling isn’t worth it. The market tells us this.

    @ Jake – what do you even mean? What market are you talking about? Do you think because you won’t earn money recycling that you shouldn’t do it?

    @Diego – good point. Didn’t Mr. Thaler and Sunstein mention that in Nudge when they talked about littering in Texas? Interesting stuff.
