Its obscene these people just buy a bike from walmart to use for the festival then just dump it.

Seen it at music festivals in the UK - pack up and leave late and see all the tents just left up full of sleeping bags and stoves etc all with their tags still on.

Just bought for the festival and then left for landfill.

That's Millennials for you. Everything is disposable.

Leave the tent/bike/sleeping bag. They only cost a couple of weeks worth of Skinny DeCaf Lattes.

No wonder they can't get on the property ladder.

Make sure that's a skinny soya hi-pro almond milk decaf... Apparently this new demographic are post peak stuff and having collections of stuff – it's all about the experience now and sharing (bragging about how amazing and fabulous a time you had) it on social media.

I sympathise with the sentiment, but I think you might be confusing cause and effect there?
You are asking a generation doomed to terminal homeless couch-surfing to responsibly take their 'disposable' goods and chattels away with them, back to where, exactly?
