Patricia BraunAs a result of our living in a "throw away" rather than "never throw anything away--use it again" society, garbage has become a major problem. Gutnik begins with a description of Audubon Woods in Wisconsin and its delicate ecosystem, ending the chapter by listing the things that can destroy this model environment. He then explores various types of garbage and the problems refuse creates, explaining how each person can make a visible difference by applying the positive principles of the "Four R's"--reduce, reuse, recycle, recover. Part of the Better Earth series, this is a consciousness-raising overview. A glossary, a list of addresses, and a bibliography are appended.
