10 Reasons Why You’ll be Buried Alive by Garbage

I received this very interesting and compelling infograph produced by KirbyBuilt.com. Some scary points include:

  • Thirteen of the 50 states have no more capacity for landfills.
  • Seven of the 50 states have 5-10 years left in reaching capacity.
  • Over 7 billion pounfs of PVC is thrown away each year and less than 1% of that is recycled.
  • One Billion Shopping bags are used each year creating 300,000 tones of landfill waste.

Just Wow!

Check out the rest of the infograph below. What are your thoughts on some of these statistics?
