    Using Pulp from Plants Makes Packaging Earth-Friendly
    August 22, 2016 — The average American throws away approximately 84 kilos of plastic every year, and much of it ends up in the ocean, according to the marine research group, Algalita. Almost half is tossed away after just one use.

    Now let's see. You are stating that it is false that CO2 is a GHG. Then you are claiming that CH4 is causing problems because it is a GHG? Perhaps you have a problem with logic?

    One might also compare the mass of fossil fuels burned (including that to make your electricity) to the mass of biodegradeable waste produced in a day. Then you could adjust the right side of that by the methane produced by the raw organic materials used to produce that biodegradeable product as they would have all produced methane upon decomposition anyway.
