Earth-Friendly Waste Management

From the Series Saving Our Living Earth

  • Interest Level: Grade 4 - Grade 7
  • Reading Level: Grade 5

People are throwing away more than ever before. Everything is made to be disposable—from diapers to dishes to cameras. Collecting, hauling, sorting, processing, burning, and burying this unwanted stuff can be challenging. Too much trash is harmful to our health and to the environment. And unmanaged waste spreads pollution into our water, soil, and air. We can help make our planet healthier by reducing, reusing, recycling, and recovering waste in Earth-friendly ways. With engaging text and eye-catching images—plus a special Going Green section—this book tells you all about Earth-friendly waste management and what you can do to promote it.
