What happens to our trash?
In WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR TRASH, D.J. Ward fills young readers in on what we throw away and where it goes. Young readers will be astounded to learn that we make more trash than any other country (almost 5 pounds per person every day)and the amount of trash produced in America annually can fill up enough garbage trucks, lined up end to end, to reach the moon. But that's not all. Learn how a landfill works, what people shouldn't throw in their garbage can, and much more.
Everything is covered in this book and the fun-filled illustrations make learning about trash, well, not stinky! After a read through this one, young readers will know just where their trash goes and will be the next generation that makes a lot less trash than we do now.
