Pollution - Waste
Throwing away also means throwing away the chance to reuse and give value to materials. It also contributes to adding to methane emissions in the garbage dumps.
Recycling materials and composting reduce the impact of dumps as much as the need for more natural resources.
Over-consumption also contributes to increasing waste – sometimes toxic – that pollute the environment and threaten the health and life of the people in the countries that produce our products.
