There's a group of consumers who aren't in love with plastic packaging and gadgets, and social networking web sites are helping them share information and ideas. The latest? Perhaps it's the Plastic Crap Wall of Shame Facebook page, created by Beth Terry of FakePlasticFish.com fame. Terry started the "Plastic Crap" site in July. The mission:
To pull back the curtain and reveal this plastic "convenience" shit for the inconvenient, unsustainable mess it really is. Upload and tag your photos. Post your links. Include a company address so we can write to them. This page is open to anyone to participate.I stumbled across the "wall" today via a link from Siel Ju's Mother Nature Network blog. Siel calls the wall "a fun way to rage against plastic waste." As of this writing, the wall has just over 1,100 people who "like" it (using the terminology of Facebook), and a pretty active "wall," mostly filled with examples and photos of plastic products that someone, somewhere, doesn't like.
