1) Trash is a waste of money. You pay for the packaging your food and other products come in. Then you immediately throw that packaging away. And you pay for the garbage bag you put it in, and then you pay for someone to come take those garbage bags away. Everything about trash is a waste of money.
2) Your trash is the window to your soul. What would someone discover about you by looking in your trashcan?
3) Trash is taking over our oceans. There's a spot in the Pacific ocean where so much plastic has accumulated, they call it the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It's an island of plastic the size of Texas, where plastic is choking out all the sea life.
