I agree. And, looking through waxes it would also be a terrible waste
of animal and vegetable wax sources that could be consumed.
The neglected wax is ear wax. I suspect millions of q-tips are
discarded daily with this resource. Collection bins for q-tips should
be instituted and taxes imposed. Government subsidies would be in order
to utilize this valuable resource.
Ear wax could be converted to candles and maybe biodiesel.
Ear wax bars would not be far behind.
