The Secret Life of Garbage

"In our way of life, in our government, with every decision we make, we always keep in mind the Seventh Generation to come. It's our job to see that the people coming ahead, the generations still unborn, have a world no worse than ours and hopefully better. When we walk upon Mother Earth we always plant our feet carefully because we know the faces of our future generations are looking up at us from beneath the ground. We never forget them."
- from Oren Lyons 

 It is sad, but some of our garbage may last for the next seven generations. See more in this wonderful "Secret Life of Garbage" graphic shared with us. Hopefully it will remind all of the future generations looking to us to make better, more sustainable choices.

  1. There is an organization: Finger Lakes Zero Waste Coalition--(Katherine Bennett Roll-sends me emails) that is all about getting people involved in the local garbage issue. There are plans for expansion of out local landfill and many issues regarding the importation of waste from all around the Northeast, including Canada.-Right now there is an issue on the table open for public comment regarding the expansion of the 5 and 20 site, with a long term plan.
