Recycle Much?

Maybe Toronto doesn’t have a garbage problem, but a recycling problem? 

The garbage strike may be drawing to a close but what lessons have we learned from these last few weeks without garbage collection?

If this strike should tell us anything, it’s that we need to recycle more. When driving past the mounds of garbage bags at any of the temporary dumps sites, is that not a wake up call for just how much waste we contribute to the landfills? 

If we consume and bag that much garbage in a few weeks, how much garbage are we actually throwing away every year? It’s a scary thought when you think about it. 

Finally, go see the film ‘Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home‘. It will teach you a lot about our consumption habits.
