Barcodes, those familiar sets of lines on items from DVDs to refrigerators, eventually may go the way of the typewriter, the black-and-white television and the dodo. Radio Frequency Identification technology promises to replace bar coding and make it easier for suppliers, distributors and retailers to track individual items. Yet while the technology holds great promise, it is currently hampered by typical new-technology woes: high-priced components, a lack of functionality and consumer privacy concerns.

Given the mass production senario, did anyone of the RFTAG maker considered enviromental impack of such device?
Barcode are basicaly printed on paper are somewhat biodegradable, tree huggers will not agree that it is the best solutions, yet it is still viable. Now consider millions and millions of little RFTAG (read toxic component which they embled) moving daily!
Progress and profit are good, but at what price?
