English: Littering in Stockholm

English: Littering in Stockholm (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

When people are not careful about throwing away trash and household toxic substances, wild animals suffer. Many animals are injured, become ill, and die each year due to human carelessness with litter and pollution. About 69 percent of that trash goes immediately into landfills. Americans generate more trash than anyone else on the planet: more than 7 pounds per person each day. Edward Humes speaks about littering, “It’s instant trash,” he says. “We pay for this stuff, and it goes right into the waste bin, and we’re not capturing it the way our recycling programs are intending us to capture it. We’re just sticking it in the ground and building mountains out of it.” Many people don’t realize how littering affects our everyday life. Most people just ignore the problem of littering and continue to do it anyway. We need to stop this now before it’s too late. RECYCLE!

    I think that’s interesting how they can track the life of garbage. Maybe we will become more aware of the life cycle of the stuff we use.
