Recycling: apparently not as green as we thought

Well, this is a bit of a bugger, as we say in England. I guess it makes sense, but it does rather suck for those of who like to recycle in the interests of avoiding landfill and protecting the planet. Personally, I recycle rather obsessively. The main reason for this is a loathing of throwing out single-use packaging and containers, especially cans and bottles, both glass and plastic. Maybe we really should just sling more of this stuff in the garbage, but it very much feels like the wrong thing to do.
