Everything You Didn't Know That You Needed to Know About Waste

Hello!

This week we talked all about waste and waste management. Mallaika and Shannon took a trip the the Waterloo Landfill site to see all of the facilities and give you the facts about waste. We featured music by the Barenaked Ladies, a Canadian band which focused on making their tours greener by teaming up with Reverb.

To check out some insane facts about waste in Canada go to:

There’s some mind boggling stuff in there like “1 edition of the Sunday New York Times consumes about 75,000 trees” or “North America has 8% of the world’s population, consumes 1/3 of the world’s resources and produces almost half of the world’s non-organic garbage.” So check it out if you needed a few more reasons to be greener.

Tune in next week where we will be debating the issue of overpopulation.
