Is it too late to save our environment? I don't think it is, but we all need to get involved. It is estimated that the average American contributes 1600 pounds of trash to the environment every year. It is up to all of us to take control of the amount of debris we add to overcrowded dumping grounds. There are so many simple, conscious efforts we can all work toward every day to reduce the amount of waste that pollutes our cities landfills.
