21.2 Billion Tonnes Of Waste Globally Each Year

Every year we dump a massive 2.12 billion tons of waste. If all this waste was put on trucks they would go around the world 24 times.

This stunning amount of waste is partly because 99 percent of the stuff we buy is trashed within 6 months.

The good news is that leading green companies are becoming zero-waste companies. Zero waste is a philosophy that encourages redesign so that all products are reused. The process is similar to the way resources are reused in nature.

Stay tuned for more waste facts or get in touch if you would like some advice on how you can recycle more efficiently.
