Downsize Landfills, Upsize Closets
A Peacemaking Project by Ashley H.
What is the injustice we are solving?
Everything is bigger in Texas, including the landfills. Each year 26 billion pounds of textiles are thrown away worldwide. America throws away around a billion trees worth of paper each year. As a huge fan of upcycling clothing, I aim to encourage my town to recycle clothing and paper more often. My town does not have an effective method of recycling and this needs to change. It is 2017 and my small Texas town must get with the times and help save our planet.
