Trash Talk: Moving Toward a Zero-Waste World
by Michelle Mulder
Humans generate a lot of garbage! With landfills reaching overcapacity, we need to think up new ways to deal with our waste. Trash Talk explores the history of garbage, explains the workings of landfills and incinerators, and highlights some of the creative ways to generate a zero-waste world. Ideas such as insulating homes with worn-out jeans, making musical instruments out of oilcans, or turning old fishing nets into carpets show what can happen when we harness our imaginations.
With high quality, full-color photos, surprising facts, personal anecdotes, and references to other resources (including movies and websites), this book offers a very compelling argument for the benefits of conservation.
