There's an argument for packaging more goods in plain brown paper, which could afterwards be composted. "Cradle to cradle" is a good book on this kind of thing, challenging received wisdom on recycling. Most important thing is for industry to separate organic and non organic waste.

I see lots of rubbish being collected  and sorted for recycling here. Despite the rapid pace of building development, and the high population density there still seems to be a lot of forest in China.
