No, I’m not referring to muddy riverbanks or what the cat dragged in–I’m talking about mountainous piles and vast caverns of old cups, plastic spoons, and food wrappers sitting stagnant for centuries. You could probably tell from my trash examples that a lot of this trash comes from food waste, particularly from the fast food industry. How much is wasted every time you dine and dash? Your styrofoam cup and plastic cutlery more than likely end up sitting stagnant in some landfill somewhere unless the fast food restaurant has other methods of disposal–and some do!
