Did you know that there is rubbish that takes thousands of years to disappear?

In our everyday lives we fail to address daily gestures that will affect the planet… for thousands of years!

One of these is rubbish.

It is estimated that the world population sits at around 7 billion inhabitants, and each person generates 1 kg of waste every 24 hours, in other words:

More than 6,500 tons of rubbish in just one day.
