Garbage

G arbage is what we have not yet learned how to use.
A re we throwing away valuable resources
R ecycle until it no longer exists
B ecome aware of waste
A lways repair or reuse rather than rebuy
G et maximum use of all you have.
E verything item squandered harms our Earth.

The sheer volume of garbage in NYC is staggering. Surely not using many of these things is preferable to recycling or worse, garbage dumps. Let’s drink water from glasses, not plastic bottles and eliminate soft drinks completely. Radical? Not, really. People lived this way just in my life time.
