Consumption “mountain ranges” prevalent in Hoboken
Updating this post from a couple years ago – where we documented how “consumer-driven” we have become just by looking at the massive mountains of garbage all over the place.
Seems to be getting worse.
Take a look at this mega-mound of refuse over at Starbucks uptown. It’s getting so bad over there, that they actually had to augment the number of cans they use. Does every food “transaction” in life involve wrappers, bags, disposable utensils and packaging? Looks that way to me.
And outside one of the luxury apartment buildings uptown, this wall of black bags was quite ominous in fact. If it toppled over, certainly an infant or animal could sustain injuries. Heck, maybe even one of those “smart cars,” too! What are these people throwing out exactly? I thought this town was all about “renewable” and other crap like that.
