The depressing thing with plastic waste is that we had the infrastructure to re-use packaging in every way, and we demolished it. From the milk-man who took the empty bottles back to returnable beverage bottles, and people taking their own packaging to the grocer to put foodstuffs in, be it cheese, olives, beans or whatever.

Now we have to build the infrastructure and the mindset again. Before it's too late.

I guess that the milkman's salary wasn't nowadays minimum wage...
That's something to take into account.

There are still milk deliveries with reused glass bottles in England. It's possible to do this and meet labour standards.
