Apple may have revoked its green certification some time ago after asking EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool) to remove all of its products from the green registry, however, they have a new form of packing technology that is biodegradable before your eyes - with some warm water.
In what has to be the worst case of wasteful packaging in the history of modern conveniece, a grocery store in Austria is actually selling pre-peeled bananas that have then been re-packaged in cellophane-covered foam trays.
Garbage. I like to think about it. I like to read about it. So I'm writing my dissertation... about it.
I'm not simply interested in what you throwaway (or recycle or compost) everyday. Or how you make really cool things out of used products destined for the dump. I want to explore more than just physical objects. By studying the networks in which waste is produced it is possible to explore how political and economic structures produce environmental degradation (ie in the words of TWL "sustainable degradation" ) . And that is what I will do. Here. In garbourgeoisie.
