You, yeah you, do you know much trash people consume in a week?
Well, according to SaveOnEnergy the average American tosses 4.4 tons of trash every. single. day. which means we fill about 63,000 garbage trucks – that’s a lot of trash and gas being consumed.
Now I am not going to preach and tell you to change your habits because we live in a world of mass consumption (that’s another story), but I am going to remind you that we do share this world with other people and species.
Having someone tell you to change is probably just as effective as me trying to complete a math problem; you end up frustrated and hopeless. I just know that as a community, we can do better.
I have faith in people & I know that we can change our habits if we realize the impact our actions have on others. Be conscious of what you put in the trash because one day it could be outside your door.
