Summary
"What a Waste! explores the problem of garbage and how humans have dealt with it from prehistory to modern times. Topics include how archaeologists study ancient garbage; the growth of consumer culture and disposability; food waste; the environmental effects of garbage; "problem" garbage like electronic and toxic waste; sewage and dead bodies; and garbage in the oceans and in space. Sidebars highlight people and organizations around the world who are making efforts to reduce or reuse waste."--
