Re: [greenyes] dishes vs. disposable


There is a practical way to answer questions like this: get industry or commerce department data on SALES of the products and then pro-rate national or regional data to arrive at a figure for your local population. This is reliable for products with a very short (single-use) lifetime.

The easiest way to measure what comes out of the pipe is to measure what goes in.
