With over 7.7 billion people in the world and over 319 million people living in the United States alone, it is no surprise that we overuse our natural resources and create an incredible amount of waste. The US has become known as a “disposable society”. Our mantra has been “out with the old and in with the new”. We throw away packaging, tires, appliances, food, clothes, plastic bottles, bags and so much more.
We tend to not consider the impact that our waste has on the world.
