CATS Conservation Book Club

June 11 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

CHAPLAIN AREA TRAILS ’ CONSERVATION BOOK CLUB WILL MEET TUESDAY, JUNE 11TH, FROM 5 PM – 6 PM.

  

“Total Garbage: How We Can Fix Our Waste and Heal Our World” by Edward Humes.  An investigative narrative that dives into the waste embedded in our daily lives—and shows how individuals and communities are making a real difference for health, prosperity, quality of life, and the fight against climate change, by a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist.

  

What happens to our trash? Why are our oceans filling with plastic? Do we really waste 40 percent of our food 65 percent of our energy? Waste is truly our biggest problem, and solving our inherent trashiness can fix our economy, our energy costs, our traffic jams, and help slow climate change—all while making us healthier, happier and more prosperous. This story-driven and in-depth exploration of the pervasive yet hard-to-see wastefulness that permeates our daily lives illuminates the ways in which we’ve been duped into accepting absolutely insane levels of waste as normal . Total Garbage also tells the story of individuals and communities who are finding the way back from waste, and showing us that our choices truly matter and make a difference.

 

“Our system produces waste almost as if that was its intent; but there are always people thinking deeper and more clearly, and their stories will help you see the possibilities for a very different world!”-Bill McKibben
