Everyone in the world produces waste of some form or another in their daily lives, from personal and household waste to emissions into the air as a result of motorized travel. The effects of this waste vary from pollution in

rivers to the much more serious threat of global climate change.



Unfortunately, the amount of waste being produced by everyone in the world is getting greater every year, and failure to deal with it could threaten the Earth's ability to support life in the future.



If we and the Earth are to survive, we must deal with the problems caused by waste as well as reducing the amount of waste we produce in the first place. Such management is called sustainable - and this book explains how the world must change and evolve in the future. It also suggests some choices the reader can

make to their waste management to ensure a sustainable future.
