• GROUP URGES LESS CONSUMPTION DURING THE HOLIDAYS

    0

    THE unrestricted consumption and disposal during the festive season is sure to choke dump trucks and dumpsites to the brim unless the public learns to be “happy with less and pare down to the essentials,” a Zero Waste advocacy group warned as Christmas draws closer. The EcoWaste Coalition, an environmental network promoting waste prevention and reduction, raised the specter of a garbage-filled Christmas as the most festive time of the year gets under way. “Bins, lampposts, sidewalks and street corners will again overflow with garbage like in previous years if we do not tone down on what we consume and throw during the holidays,” said Christina Vergara, Zero Waste campaigner, EcoWaste Coalition. “Our insatiable hunger for material possessions, for things that are newer, grander and smarter, is sadly consuming lots of resources and generating tons of discards, which, if not properly sorted for reuse or recycling, will end up getting burned or dumped somewhere,” she said.
