This month, I've left the real world for the garbage heap - also known as Garbage Land: On the Secret Trail of Trash. I am only half finished which is a testament not to the writing style but to the busy-ness of my month.
Garbage Land is an easy, quick read that is both surprisingly entertaining and interesting. It is stocked with fascinating facts like: "packaging makes up 35 percent of household waste in the United States (by weight) . . . [and] yard waste and food scraps make up another twenty five percent."(124) and delves into every aspect of waste from compost to plastic to poop. While I don't think this book will shake my belief system or alter the green movement's path, it is a very worthwhile and informative read. You will never look at your garbage can the same way.
