Following up on my earlier post regarding our society’s proficency at generating garbage, I recently saw these amazing facts:
The garbage generated by Americans in a single year would fill a coast to coast lineup of garbage trucks. 100 times!!
Every person in America generates an average of 5 pound of waste PER DAY. In 1960, we generated only 2 pounds per day.
By diligently composting, recycling and avoiding creation of trash, our family generates very little garbage. The sooner we all get on that program, the better. The garbage-filled path we’re on right now is unsustainable.
