Seven BILLION people?!
On the way to work this morning, I heard a news report on the radio that really got me thinking...
This report by National Public Radio stated that the U.N. estimated that today the population of the earth would reach seven BILLION people.
I started thinking about how much trash and other waste seven billion people can generate on their own. Then I started thinking about how much waste manufacturing plants would have to produce to keep enough of this or that on the shelves for those seven billion people. And then I thought about how the majority of those products had to be packaged somehow. Waste, waste, waste. It's the nature of the beast.
The only thing I could think about while listening to this report was this: There will never be a better time than right now to establish environmentally-friendly manufacturing technologies within your operation-- within your daily life in general!
I love that what we do here at WEIMA America really matters.
