Beautiful Trash

"And Man created the plastic bag and the tin and aluminum can and the cellophane wrapper and the paper plate and the disposable bottle, and this was good because Man could then take his automobile and buy his food all in one place and he could save that which was good to eat in the refrigerator and throw away that which had no further use. And pretty soon the earth was covered with plastic bags and aluminum cans and paper plates and disposable bottles, and there was nowhere left to sit down or to walk. And Man shook his head and cried, 'Look at all this God-awful litter.'"
–Art Buchwald, 1970
The study and analysis of data has given us a picture of the recycling situation both in Italy and worldwide. We divided the content in five booklets, trying to explain the single recycling process for each material and make people aware not only of the importance of recycling but also how to act in order to improve the process.
