It not so much about us anymore. What are you going to do about China or India or any place that is overflowing with people that don't have any concept of the ecosphere. There are a bunch of people out there tossing trash that don't have any idea of the magnitude of the problem and they are multiplying at an alarming rate.

Re: Hundreds of Tons of Garbage

As that last video series points out, it is about all of us. Every last one of us on Earth. We all must do what we can and part of that means talking the walk...so to speak.

If you just think this is a third world problem, try walking around your city or town. You will notice things that you wont see from your car or bus or train window.
