Description
"Takes a look at the pileup of waste in the United States, including the problem of plastic, the industry of overmedication, e-waste products, everyday garbage, fast fashion trash, space waste, and other forms of profligacy that make our nation the biggest waster on the planet. Looking at the environmental impact of so much garbage, Dondero explores not just how we got here and where we're headed, but ways in which we might be able to curb the tide. From what you do and don't eat; what and how your products are packaged; the rampant production of clothes; the space and waste in which you work and live; what you breathe, eat, and drink; the tools you use to work and play; the energy overproduced and ill-used for a pleasant lifestyle; the waste you generate; and how humans are beginning to clutter the cosmos -- all these and more are profiled in the Throwaway Nation, as well as how to prohibit and mitigate the flow of our garbage and to use it productively"--,Provided by publisher.
