Although there are no Euro 2012 Championship games in Polish city of Zamość, one of its entrepreneurs prepared special banners for Euro 2012. He’s yet another victim of famous Polish tax-office. The one that makes devastating effect on lots of Polish companies. Without any reasons or notices, the tax-office didn’t make a tax-return of 1.9 million PLN (about 430 k Euro) to the company. The entrepreneur – Zbigniew Stonoga had to fire 15 persons so his company wouldn’t close. The mistakes are on purpose, so he won’t get any ticket for this. If I were him I would expect millions of rutine controls from many different offices and state-bureaus which met robbed A2 highway constructors

Is there a limit to our single-use production and consumption?

I worked as a sales representative in a few places, and I’ve seen the scale of products being wasted. Didn’t sell? Throw it out. Burn it, tore it, waste it. Why can we afford such mass waste of our resources?

I must ask: does the environment have a limit  to single-use goods production? By single-use I mean everything that breaks down and can’t be repaired  in a reasonable price.

It has to stop or otherwise we’ll run out of plastic, metals or other materials we use to manufacture our devices, cars, furniture, tools and other goods. Continue reading
