“Following a sustainable lifestyle of reusing items rather than tossing everything in the garbage will rub off on your children. They will learn to live the same way, which will help them become more in tune with the environment and the effects – both positive and negative – we as humans have on it”
Wherever they go, humans leave garbage behind. In America, the average person throws away over a thousand pounds of waste each year. Is it the same around the world? How do people in other countries deal with their refuse? After all, trash is one thing that we all have in common.
It is thanks to our collective garbage that we have the Bubonic Plague, typhoid fever, cholera and all kinds of nasty bacterial diseases such as malaria and dysentery, with new ones popping up every day, such as SARS.
