Trash Revolution: Breaking the Waste Cycle

Written by Erica Fyvie, Illustrated by Bill Slavin

What happens to all our stuff after we throw it away? This book answers that question by showing how food, clothing, water, paper, plastic, electronics and other materials are trashed and then recycled. The introduction defines the waste cycle and the scope of how much trash we throw away. Then the book is divided into sections on each resource, with informative diagrams, illustrations and interesting facts. There is a glossary in the back, as well as an index and two pages of online resources. While every page is densely packed with information, I felt the layout suffered and made the book less reader friendly. Still, this would be a good resource on recycling, Earth Day, supply & demand, environmentalism, sustainability, consumerism, landfill, groundwater, and energy.
