Waste Management

Waste Management

To ensure that we, and future generations, have what we need to live comfortable lives, we need to husband our resources. Reducing what we use, buying reusable items, composting what we can, and recycling when an object is finally worn out are all ways in which this can be done.  Planned obsolescence and excess packaging create a need to use more of our land for trash disposal. Plastic bags and other litter make their way to the ocean where huge 'islands' of our unwanted items pollute the water and kill the wildlife. 
Current Projects: No current project — suggest one!
