Learning about responsible waste management is essential for reinforcing the fundamental principals of ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ that underpin the values of sustainable living. Developing an understanding of what happens to our rubbish establishes a direct connection between our actions and the impact that they have on the planet and promotes sustainable patterns of living. ‘What Happens To Our Rubbish’ provides an overview of the three main avenues for household waste – landfill, recycling and composting – and supports discussion about the environmental advantages and disadvantages of each option. Similar titles in the Find Out About series include ‘Recycling’ and ‘Composting’.
