We live in a society that tends to throw things away without really giving it much thought. Although the tide seems to be changing in this regard, the trash heaps are still filling at a rapid rate and unfortunately, we seem to be running out of space. At times, some of the things that we throw away are even designed to be tossed to the kerb.
