Can Students Discard Printed Books in the Future?

Green Prophet

As the ecological footprint of countries and individuals continue to grow, we can only expect very little improvement in handling paper waste. Thus, a debate on the future of books brings to the fore, two critical standpoints.

Green (Living) Review

Just in case you weren't quite convinced that waste food is a real problem with real consequences, however, a new study is highlighting a somewhat less talked about consequence of discarded food – the waste of water used to grow it.

A large proportion of discarded fish is consumed by seabirds, many of which (like gulls) are adapted to a scavenging lifestyle. It makes discarded fish by far the largest human-generated source of bird food. Some seabirds get as much as 50 percent of their calories from fish discards. Fish may be discarded for several reasons.

If You Want to Stop Wasting Water and Energy, Stop Wasting Food

Green (Living) Review

In the United States, 40 percent of the food grown each year is discarded uneaten. Once buried in a landfill, discarded food decomposes anaerobically and creates methane, a greenhouse gas 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide. And growing that uneaten food also means wasted fossil fuel and pesticides: About 300 million barrels of oil globally go into growing, transporting, and preparing discarded food each year.
