SICK OF TRASH? SO ARE WE!

Trash is a problem. It is your problem, your friends‘ problem, your country’s problem, your planet’s problem. It is our mutual problem, which directly affects the environment we live in. The biggest producers of trash are the most advanced economies with US leading the chart at over 700kg of waste per person per year. All developed nations follow with Australia creating 690kg of trash per person per year; European Union is caching up with ca 500kg of trash per person.

Everyone at Horsefeathers feels the pressure to improve this statistic and to also include as many people as possible in adopting a different, sustainable perspective. Even though we realize that globally this generates only a small result, we feel it makes sense since each bit counts and because it is also about developing a long-term sense of responsibility. Our living environment from rivers and forests to parks and streets is frequently damaged by irresponsible behavior and adds to the negative effect of trash problematic. Not only does the society create large volumes of trash, but further it often does not properly manage the ideal sorting and recycling processes. Let alone the fact, that some individuals are actually able to dump their waste on our beaches, in our forests, in our waters.

So, wait no more and get involved. The Sick of Trash project is on!
