Burger joints toss billions of burgers a year (Mac Donald's alone serves about 2 billion), each individually wrapped in plastic coated paper and thrown into a paper bag with a few paper napkins. That's more than 100 per second, worldwide. Throw in a dozen other fast food conglomerates and we’re up to our necks in greasy garbage. What’s worse is that most of this paper makes its way into a trash can after only about 5 minutes of use.

Green burials is a growing trend amongst the older generations nowadays. It ensures that the burial site remains as natural as possible in all respects. Interment of the bodies is done in a bio-degradable casket, shroud, or a favorite blanket. No embalming fluid, no concrete vaults. We don’t usually expect graveyards to give us much besides a chance to express grief, but a small town in Spain has found a new use for them: energy powerhouses. It has placed more than 400 solar panels on top of mausoleums in the local cemetery.

If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a big surprise because the whole place will probably be littered with plastic plates, cups and utensils left behind by lazy picnickers.

Although it is much more convenient to throw away our used plates than to have a mountain of dirty dishes growing in the kitchen sink every day waiting to be washed. This convenience comes at a high price for our planet. Not only does the production and distribution of these plastics have ill-effects on the earth and those who occupy it, but our consistent usage of these plastics leads to an excessive amount of non-biodegradable trash that terrorizes our environment and food chains.
