If we live in the city, everything we throw away in the black bin is delivered to the landfill, which everybody should know. What is looks like is one huge sea of garbage where everything you’ve ever bought and dumped is piled right on top of each other.
On one end of an extreme, what if human consumption and landfill got so huge that it started to spread onto our front doors? There’s no way out of it, and the problem will only increase as time passes with more and more waste coming out of everyone’s homes.
On the other end of the extreme, what if all the things we’ve used were able to slowly and safely feed back into nature? It would be nutritious for the earth to swallow and a regenerative process. We would have a much smaller municipal garbage dump and would leave the earth in a better state than we started with.
