Well ain't that just woke.
So you think this is doing something for the environment. I guess they have already grounded their corporate jets and making products out of minute volumes of plastic was all they could do.
I don’t question your sincerity, I question Sony’s.
@carlsbad @vonhelmholtz Whatever their motivation, and I’m not exactly a Sony fan, what’s the harm of putting recycled bottles into earbuds rather than a landfill? I’ve got shoes that were also made from recycled plastic and have served me very well for years rather than adding to a landfill. What’s the problem here? Would you rather have this plastic in a landfill? Does that sound better to you? If so, why? I’d love to know why that’s a better outcome to you.
Nothing wrong with them doing this. I have issues with corporations and in some cases individuals promoting their degree of righteousness. Regarding climate, this has taken on the appearance of a secular religion and the mass suppression of those of differing views follows. Labeling someone a climate denier is the modern version of calling someone a heathen and violence then follows. Nobody wants plastic in water and food, nor contaminated air, nor lithium contaminated soil, but please act properly and stop grandstanding. I’m not directing this request of those posting here. I’ll stipulate that Sony is environmentally righteous. Sorry, I just escaped from the intolerant state of California and have issues with using these topics for self promotion.
@vonhelmholtz Not sure I understand why you view this as self righteousness. If they don’t tell us the buds are made of recycled plastic, how else are we to know? Is there a way they could tell us this without being self righteous?
@vonhelmholtz No prob whatsoever, and I think it’s perfectly fine we disagree. How boring would the world be if we all thought alike, and I always welcome hearing a different opinion or viewpoint because that’s how I learn. And, by the way, we’re all odd ducks, but at least you and I get to appreciate music played through good equipment, which I think makes us happier odd ducks than the average duck. Cheers.
