During this time on earth it's easy for us to become very disconnected from the results of our actions. It's difficult to imagine the scale of trash that we have produced, as the ocean garbage patches and landfills are often out of sight, out of mind. Educating ourselves about our waste helps us remember that our behavior around trash affects the planet -- animals and plants and their ecosystems are dying! We rely on the planet for our survival and have taken so much from the earth without giving much back. Each of us has the power to reduce our impact. This is a call to action to change our consumer habits!
