I use a Canon i9900 printer, and that's exactly what I get for waste for an ink cartridge. Unbelievable.

My favorite is when I go into a store and buy one or two things I'll usually say "no bag please." Half the time if they have already started grabbing a bag they will throw it right into the trash! Makes me want to scream!

Totally agree! If you ever have writers block, I have one for you. Cigarette butts being thrown out the window! The median at the intersection of 237 and 18 is like one big ashtray! (Head south on 237 and get in the left hand turn lane!) And oh how I love to step in a pile of someone's discarded ashtray remnants in the parking lot. Did I mention the pile of butts by entrances to buildings!

Only three items in the picture (well, four if you count the ink cartridge itself) are non-sustainable. The package, receipt, and cardboard filler are all sustainable--that is, they're going to decompose into fibers and eventually dirt or be recycled if you have the green bin. The plastic bags may or may not be sustainable depending on what its made of (petrochemical or corn). What really is worrisome is how India, China, and other huge developing economies handle their waste products. Our little blips of smaller packaging will only chip away at the surface problems of global waste. Not saying we shouldn't do our part; just that our part is a small piece of the pie that even carbon credits won't fix.

not to mention how we should dispose of the lead: through the sewer sytem, drinking water, swimming pools, Ohio River, Mississippi River, Iraq...

Dang, what a great cartoon. Can I swipe the idea if I change it around some and put my own name on it?

Having worked in retail, I can unfortunately give a legitimate explanation for the precariously large packaging in ink cartridges. Theft. Those packages make it more difficult for the would be thieves to conceal the small but expensive items.

Ever wonder about those huge plastic things that you need razor blades to get in? Back in my retail days we found one of those cut open with blood on it! Apparently the thief tried to steal it and cut himself.
