Once "recycled", that plastic, glass, paper, is then loaded onto a truck, which then goes to a Chinese factory employing overworked, underage people to build Cheap Chinese Trinkets, which are then loaded on a truck, which goes to a seaport, loaded on a container ship, sent to America, which is then offloaded onto trucks, which then deliver the product to warehouses, which then separate the Cheap Chinese Trinkets onto other trucks, which then make deliveries to customer accounts.
Feelings are more important than facts.
