“There is no such thing as ‘away.’ When we throw anything away, it must go somewhere” Annie Leonard

Every year humans produce billions of tons of waste.

Less said better about recycling, which is yet to go on a massive scale.

Waste management is minimal in developing countries.

Adding insult to injury, it is said that developed countries export their waste to landfill sites in the underdeveloped countries where no facilities exist to recycle the same.

How to minimize waste for the survival of Mother Earth? (Six R)

Refuse what you do not need;

Reduce what you do need;

Reuse what you consume;

Recycle what you cannot refuse,

Reduce, or reuse; and

Rot (compost) the rest”

Bea Johson

Which countries produce the most waste?

Do you know world’s best garbage?

“The best garbage is the garbage that doesn’t get created in the first place” Unknown


“We live in a disposable, ‘cast-off and throw-away’ society that has largely lost any real sense of permanence.

Ours is a world of expiration dates, limited shelf life, and planned obsolescence. Nothing is absolute”

Myles Munroe

  1. I find recycling so frustrating, I do it. But there are so many rules, and then I watched a documentary. It was so frustrating to see on stupid thing be put into the recycling and it ruins the whole lot. They need to figure out a system, when it gets to recycling to recycle better. This person put a broken umbrella in with their recycling. It ruined a lot of the recycling, and I say there thinking “Why couldn’t they just take the umbrella out, why did it ruin the rest of it?”

    1. Couldn’t agree more my friend.
      Things start with lots of fun fare and we imagine good things are going to happen…but the results are frustrating, especially when you are in the midst of idiots.
