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