As the garbage pile gets higher and the environmental conscience sharpens, it is now recognized that producing waste at this rate is no longer acceptable.

As waste disposal strategies evolve, the consumption rates in the developed world are questioned and a surprisingly reasonable solution appears: why not consume less, or at least better.
