Extra Garbage for the Holidays

From Earth911

Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, Americans throw away 25 percent more trash than they do during the rest of the year. That’s 1.2 million extra tons of trash a week. The still slow-moving economy isn’t expected to make an impact on this year’s waste either: 226 million shoppers visited stores and retail websites on Black Friday this year, an increase over 2010. Online sales were up 26 percent from last year, which translates to a commensurate increase in packaging.
