Unrelated to advertising but I want to see what people think about this. I believe that a lot of the terrible and inefficient products/industries (think plastic packaging, oil companies, and, probably most relevant and equally most terrible, guns) are about staying relevant at all costs, even if it means stopping progress, sacrificing the earth, and killing children. And it’s not even out of complete greed, but more allowing people to keep their professions and not having to uproot their lives

i think this is perhaps less relevant for plastic. but there is a lot of money to be made in oil and guns, and that money funds people w/ political power who won’t change the status quo because it’s not financially advantageous to them.

as for how to change this? i don’t think anyone knows lol. theres such a complex web of how money, power, and the govt intersect in america as far as regulating these things. profit > everything 🫠

Oil is a main ingredient in making plastic and a huge source of revenue for the oil industry. In fact, a lot of the pollution attributed to oil companies comes not from fossil fuels but their plastics business. Therefore, big oil spends a lot of money ensuring we not only guzzle gas but keep using single-use plastic.

It may be completely obvious to some, but I’m more wondering, if it is true, how do we change this?

How to join??

You’re spot on - the fuel and petchem industries focus a LOT on the jobs they create, which historically has been a big focus for republicans.

They also make the case that their industries make modern life possible. See AFPM’s “we make progress” campaign for an example. We wouldn’t have stretchy jeans, MRI machines, etc without plastics.

Melatonin, CBD, and OTC drugs don’t work for him.
