What To Do With The Rubbish When You're Not Sure If It Can Be Recycled

The past couple of weeks our blogs have highlighted the issues regarding the money system and consumerism. This week, I would like to ‘lighten’ the load a bit and talk about what to do with all our ‘stuff’, in other words, the three R’s, Reduce – Reuse – Recycle. 

Most of us are aware of recycling and using our ‘yellow’ bins once a fortnight. But what about the items that we aren’t too sure about?

The ‘stuff’ that ends up being thrown away or hidden deep in the garage to be forgotten until it reappears when you have to move or decide to de-clutter.

Items such as broken toys, stained clothes, alarm clocks, blenders, hair driers, cameras, CDs, TVs and so on. The list is endless. I thought I’d have a look at the alternatives to ditching these items in the bin to instead find a more eco friendly solution.

This is what I discovered:

The Truth About The Monetary System: Why We Also Trade in LETS Currency

An important cause we concern ourselves with here at Eco Party Box is the crisis of the current federal monetary system.

If you have watched one of the internet’s most popular documentary’s: Zeitgeist Addendum, and the 20-minute section on money and then researched the information for yourself, you will know that since 1913 the Congress of America has been stripped of its rights to create the nation’s money, essentially taking that power of money creation away from the people. 

The then newly-elected president American president Woodrow Wilson transferred this power in to the hands of the international private bankers who had bankrolled his campaign to have him elected. 

Wilson was later quoted as saying: “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
