Almost everything consumed on earth creates waste and with 7.7 billion humans and counting, all that displaced waste is killing our natural world – a world essential to human existence.
It’s a critical time for everyone alive to make as many changes to their daily lifestyle – everything from the chocolate you eat to the cocaine you may use and the flights you take for business and pleasure are all but just the ‘tip of the iceberg’ in a long and daunting list of things our human race is doing to accelerate natural decline and climate change.
Knowing all that can be overwhelming and make it even harder to even know how or where to begin lessening your carbon footprint – but your waste is your immediate responsibility and it’s a great place to start. The good news is that it is not all ‘ unusable waste’ and most of it actually has a value which can be recovered! That’s why waste management is SO very important to the concept of sustainability and why it should be a strong focus everywhere humans exist.
