This is another classical case (among so many) describing the psychosis of “following the money” leading society to a precipice.
Of course, an injection of “mind control” is necessary and everything: selling cleanness and get people completely obsessed with it. That is exactly how money works on the psyches, by fear induction – or ego flattering.
Somebody who is not too worried about his/her security will not buy into any frenzy or rush of any kind, but approach any trend with a healthy dose of skepticism and objectivity. But Money, and this because needs and desires are different for everybody, tends to turn perceptions into Reality.
Unfortunately, perceptions remains mere perceptions. Subjectivity can never become Objectivity. That is the shabby secret of the top 1%, they know pretty well the difference between the two. They are taking advantage of a dichotomy
In the meantime, the planet is being massacred at a pace like unseen before and ultimately the consumers have the power to change the course of Mankind…. but how much are you willing to change your habits and let go monetarism?
JULY 2017 | Wiping your ass is ruining the environment – but there’s an alternative solution…………… Not so fast, says Scientific American in the pages of a new study published this month. Toilet paper, after all, is more than just paper. That special 2-ply roll incorporates dozens of different chemicals, including water, in its processing. In the United States alone, it takes more than 15 million trees, 473,587,500,000 gallons of water, 253 tons of chlorine and 17.3 terawatts of electricity to meet the annual demand for toilet paper. In comparison, a bidet costs about 1000 dollars for a one-time purchase, and then uses an eighth of a gallon for every bum-spraying session. Over the course of your lifetime, you’ll spend more money on toilet paper than you ever will on a bidet, and most are so easy to install that you might not even need to call in a plumber. https://theplaidzebra.com/wiping-your-ass-is-ruining-the-environment-but-theres-an-alternative-solution/
Extra-soft, quilted and multi-ply toilet roll made from virgin wood causes more damage than gas-guzzlers, fast food or McMansions, say campaigners
In the UK, during their annual beach clean-up, the Marine Conservation Society found 35 grey, waste-stained non-biodegradable wet wipes for every kilometre of sand. (from nytimes article below)
The equivalent of about 27,000 trees are either flushed or dumped into landfills every day due to toilet paper overuse. The pulp and paper industry is the greatest industrial cause of deforestation in the world. Wet wipes, which do not disintegrate the way traditional toilet paper does, have plagued Hawaii and Alaska, Wisconsin and California.
LONG TERM SOLUTION: BUY A BIDET (first link at the top)
