I’m Angry

I was preparing some recycling at work and found out that the wax coated boxes (like mac and cheese, frozen foods, etc) are not recyclable. WTF?! Why would these companies use these boxes when they can’t be reused or recycled? I don’t understand. I have done some research on it, and it appears that they are not recycled in my area and that just breaks my heart. Plus, I have been “recyling” them for months, so they have just been going to the trash. Consumers love a pretty box, convenient packaging…and apparently they love destroying the Earth and overfilling the landfills, making our planet a big old trash can. Man I am so pissed right now. My Kleenex box says that is is made from 100% recycled paperboard, but it does not appear to be recyclable. Does anyone have any insight into this, or am I just going to have to curl up in fetal position and freak out (like I am already doing)?

Darn old Blogger won’t let me post a picture, but it would just be me making an angry face.
