We’ve got a junk problem.
In case you didn’t already know, we are killing our planet with our junk. Piles of piles of waste, trash, junk, and rubbish are just accumulating by leaps and bounds. The landfills are growing out of control, and there is only one thing that can stop it.
We’ve got to start thinking creatively.
We’ve got to start approaching this problem with a fresh perspective and mind.
Thankfully, there are innovaters in this space beginning to make a difference.
For example there is a junk removal company called One Call Clean Out that is tackling this incredibly huge problem in a new way. Instead of hauling junk off to the closest landfill, this company thinks creatively about ways to recycle, upcycle, refurbish, donate and resell. Those 5 words combined offer options to dealing with the problem at hand. By looking at every piece of junk they pickup and running it through the filter of recycle, upcycle, refurbish, donate, and resell, they can make good choices about what to do with the items before a landfill or trash yard is even an option. The % of items hauled off to waste yards is very minimal. This also enables them to keep their costs low.
Think if every trash, or junk removal company operated like this. Think what the impact on our planet would be if every household thought like this?
We need to think of ways like this to be less wasteful and more creative with our re-use of the things we buy.
