On finding a refill


My pen ran out of ink the other day and I did not throw it away because I wanted to buy a refill. Why generate more plastic waste by throwing away pens right? However, I could not find a single refill in any of the books or stationary shops. They all had pens but no refills. In the end, I had to buy pens because they simply don’t sell refills. So much for being environment friendly. 

As much so many of us advocate individual action to drive environmental change, some most of it is quite difficult or plain inconvenient without the corresponding change in policies. How many businesses really want to change unless forced to?
