1/- Recycling - best form of recycling is maintenence+longservice from products + not overusing + controlling development marketing + making product return to manufacturer for recycling (traditional meaning) mandatory. 2/- Man (the species) is killing the planet by the weight of numbers. Reduce breeding incentives, reward family long term reliance, make society contribution mandatory (right thing to do). 3/- Corporate direction towards maintenance of life standards and away from product. 4/- Finally realise that digging a hole for drainage, cutting a hedge for its continued health, walking to school and not using machines when we can do the job ourselves are ALL GOOD THINGS! A new Microsoft info-advert says we NEED to produce 60% more food to feed the increasing population. I argue that the increase in population is ultimately beyond anything so-called technological advance can help with and that it is the increase in population that is in need of control. The days of needing five children to keep 'your' genetic tree alive are gone. If anything is going to kill this planet off then 'ego', 'selfishness' and 'greed' will up at the top of my list. I could go on - probably gone too far for most already.
