Greenwashing... The scourge of the 21st century. More bull than M$, G00gle & Tesla man combined.
They offset the clean up on to the people who bought it, maximising profit. Plastic being particularly bad as a lot is almost impossible to recycle. Not good at a time the world wants to burn less oil and oil producers are looking at alternative markets. Expect more "enviro friendly" made from oil products. (Ineos... How are the "environmentally friendly" 'biodegradable' still made from oil plastic bags?)
Until you give the rubbish eg plastic back to those who created it and make them deal with it they won't stop producing it.
Looking forward to 10-15 years time as the "green" energy, investment fund & VC backed companies bust themselves rather than pay to clean up their solar & wind farms. Same stunt as North Sea oil rigs we pay tax to cleanup today.
What a mess.
