"It’s a little handle that locks/unlocks the metal bars that divide up the middle drawer. It slides freely in both X and Y directions to divide the drawer into rectangles of any size, but you have to twist to lock/unlock it. They probably twisted too hard, or moved it without unlocking."

"I wouldn’t blame the in-laws. I have a fridge also, and it is cheaply made. We have broken plastic pieces as well."

#26 How in the heck does giving everyone a tiny packet of garbage help clean the planet? Seems to me they're just redistributing it.
It's like when someone hands you a flyer. "Here, you throw this away." (RIP Mitch)

Ignatius, Allegedly a keyring - more realistically greenwashing.

Ignatius,
It's called Greenwashing, like the TV ads that say "We're working toward...", "We're aiming to...", "Our goal is..."
It's all about making your company appear to be environmentally conscious without actually doing anything.

Ignatius,

While in fact they add even more plastic, and to make it worse they send it around the globe.

Sue, Save some of your ire for the common man. Humans got along for thousands of years without constantly toting plastic water bottles wherever they went to "stay hydrated". Suddenly, no one can be without one, and the ubiquitous empties attest to that.

Wrong answer. These old village houses in Spain do not have rain gutters. So when it rains, the water drips onto the sidewalk and the ricochet lands on the door. In the long run it ruins the wood of the doors, against which these boards protect. Against peeing dogs one puts up water-filled plastic bottles.
