We won’t give away the ending — the twist — to this environmentally conscious flashmob event staged at a shopping mall somewhere in Quebec, Canada. We will say 1) that the video makes a disappointing statement about attitudes toward recycling and 2) one person ends up being a really good sport.
How are Australians doing in this regard? With no flashmob assistance, the percentage of households that report practicing some form of waste recycling or reuse grew from 91% in 1996 to 98% in 2009. However, those numbers from the Bureau of Statistics don’t tell us the volume of recycled waste. That level of info might require some mob help to dig out.
