Trash Stats! – An Infographic About Garbage
“Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year gets lost or wasted.” “There is enough plastic produced every year to encircle the world four times.” “Plastic takes 500-1000 years to break down!” – These are just a few of the statistics that the students of Youth 125 found to put on display.
In May, Angelina and Linda researched information about garbage – where it goes, how long it takes to break down, who’s responsible, etc. They then took all this information and displayed it using an infographic!
