We produce a LOT of garbage in one year - in fact, Canadians are one of the world's highest producers of garbage. The cost of managing all this waste is high and costs us all. Landfills are the most common methods used to dispose of garbage. Think of all the problems associated with these sites - environmental noise, dust, disease, and leaching to name a few. We have to find ways to reduce our waste. In this program, we visit schools who have completed waste audits, use worms (yes, that's right!), raise salmon fry to release into a local "cleaned-up" river and talk about the use of excessive packaging.
