Ok, so for a while now my uncle and Dad have been collecting can tabs to help someone on a dialysis machine. So, they’ve been getting everyone they know to collect tabs too.
I find it annoying to take the tab off when all along I was like this makes no sense how a tab could do any good. If anything you would think the whole can would be a smarter option.
anyways, so we’re at a party last night and I finally call BS on it and look it up on google. Snopes is the first site that popped up and it dismissed the idea that collecting tabs is a real deal to help people. It placed the actual recycle value of 100 tabs at 3.5 cents.
I tell this to my cousin and her husband and they are fighting me about how do I know it’s not real and why do I trust some website.
Absolutely amazing what people will believe at face value without ever questioning it.
I’m telling them to think logically about it and they don’t want to hear it and say well if it’s not hurting anyone why should it matter.
Guess it just annoys me that people blindly believe something and then when you give them evidence to the contrary they argue harder, lol.
ps- anyone collect tabs? lol
