The Secret Life of Garbage

Garbage is one of earth’s greatest obstacles – it doesn’t simply go away. Every year, landfills fill up more and more, while damaging our precious ozone and creating a gradual decline in the quality of life for us and our environment. Americans produce 10 times their body weight in trash each year, which, as this infographic points out, is enough for each of us to bury ourselves alive. Take note of the life-cycle of garbage, and make a change in your lifestyle to do your part in taking care of our planet.
