"How much trash do you make in a week?" That's the simple question posed by BuzzFeed in a recent video. Unfortunately, the answer is a lot bigger, and smellier, than any of us expected.
We live in a society that loves convenience. Since we're constantly moving, we need things to be quick and easy. Fast food wrappers and Starbucks cups allow us to get what we need and ditch the package in the blink of an eye. But like a college student putting off doing their dishes, all of that trash is slowly building up, and we'll have to do something about it eventually. Buzzfeed may not have the perfect solution, but we can all make a difference by being more mindful about what we throw away.
