What is the cost of global overconsumption? As a result of intensive manufacturing, complex agriculture, and cheap goods, we produce shocking amounts of trash. So much, in fact (we produce 2.12 billion tons of waste every year), that if piled up like a mountain, it would rival Mount Everest.
While Germany is all about recycling, Sweden is all about energy efficiency as they convert a whopping 52% of their waste into energy. From their waste, they generate enough energy to heat one million homes, and provide electricity for 250,000 homes. Along with having a recycling center within 1,000 feet of every residential area, they recycle 47% of their waste. This means that only 1% of their waste is put in landfills. Astounding.
