Today I’m over at Life Your Way talking about a super exciting topic: Garbage.
Okay, well obviously, it’s really not that exciting, but I do think it’s an important topic to talk about and think about. Our country produces A LOT of waste everyday, and most of that waste ends up in the landfill. And I think a lot of people believe the myth that garbage decomposes in the landfill, but that’s not actually true. From the post:
What really happens to garbage in the landfill?
A few years ago I attended a community event on getting started with composting. The speaker told us about a research project that excavated landfills, like one might excavate an archeological site, and the results were surprising.
Instead of disgusting, decomposing, rotting material, the team from the University of Arizona found trash that was 30-40 years old and still recognizable. In fact they used newspapers to date how long the trash had been in the landfill, because they were still legible!
