Tips: You’ll need to wear gloves, and ideally use a grabber to pick up the trash. Avoid any risk of putting your hand somewhere spiky or smelly. Dispose of the trash safely once you’ve finished, and recycle what you can.
Geography: Sustainability is a key idea in geography, and our modern lifestyles are often less than sustainable. Humans often use resources more quickly than they can reproduce, re-grow or recycle them. This mission will open your eyes to the things that people throw away. Remember, however, that nothing truly goes ‘away’ — trash is often transported to giant landfills or dumped in our oceans, which presents problems of its own, while recycled materials may be recycled into new products. Do some research to learn about where your trash goes.
How does this trash affect your community’s environment? Does it affect your local watershed? Parks? Neighborhood?
