This is do to the fact that companies never have to do a environmental impact evaluation on their product and it packaging. That cost is ignored and passed on to the tax payer. There needs to be a tax based on the report. The more it pollutes the higher the tax. No companies will say it is a job killer or would make the product to expensive. Good, this way they can find a cleaner way to make their products or do not make them. There also needs to be a "award" like Noble that rewards products that are engineered to last longer, easy to repair yourself.
