I can understand it, however, I still find it a waste and pretty stupid.

Where would you draw the line btw? What with head gear? A helmet? Persnonal or helmets everywhere to take? Same with lab coats? Protective shoes etc...

 

BTW in 3D cinemas it's the same (at least here), you always get new glasses (if you want or not) and can return after watching the film the used ones. I hope they clean and reuse them or at least recycle them somehow, but not sure. Anyway for such large enterprises this seems cheaper than anything else.

 

To be honest: never been to a 3D movie, are you talking about the "paper" kind of glasses or?

 

Same on airplanes, often on international flights they give you trow away earphones... Its a shame how much is trown away in the end.

 

 

unfortunately not...pure plastics...here they look usually like these: https://en.wikipedia.../File:REALD.JPG   just wasted one this evening dry.png

and yes it's a throwaway society, not a really sustainable system

That is....if she posts at all.

Is your experience based on only USA companies?

 

 

I am not as experienced as you are, but the companies I did visit or worked at (in europe) they did not really use trow away glasses...

Most of them also used re-usable ear plugs (and also provided trow away plugs).

 

I wonder if there is a difference in approach in companies in Europa vs USA.

 

+ still believe that it has a lot to do with workethics and "trow away ethics" in general.

If people would be more aware of their protection, you would not need so many trow away stuff. If you are also more aware of the need of your security/safety, you would also take care of your personal protective gear...

 

Coming back on your argument that if you provide enough ear plugs (at certain places, free to take) people would wear them faster than when they are not present everywhere (and you are supposed to wear your own). I wonder if you have a paper or some study about this?

Because if people are already "too bored" to take care of their persnonal stuff, I wonder how interested they are in their own safetey and indeed wear them all the time.

 

 

 

About the trow away stuff in cinemas => you can hardly defend this , this is not like in companies where I can undertand your argument.


If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.

Ok.

 

I guess its because I mostly visited/worked in smaller companies. I guess they are more into saving money and re-using stuff.
