Why are people of the world wasting all the resources?

There are so many ways to reduce waste and trash. For example, paper can be made from cotton, hemp, papyrus and linen and they are better than wood paper. It only takes those plants a small fraction of the time to grow than it does a 40 foot tall tree that's a hundred years old. Wind power and solar power are so much easier, cheaper and far less poluting. We could use quills and berry ink instead of disposable pens. Just doing simple things like that would make a big difference. Why is that companies use ways that are harmful to the environment and less effective than organic and non-harmful ways? Does it anger you that they're so wasteful? What do you think people could do to stop wasting? Please post thoughts. Thanks.

I agree with you. Most people are only concerned about their own immediate needs & pleasures without thinking of the repercussions of their actions. Some actually get angry if you point out to them that what they are doing will harm the environment
