Kids Take Action is dedicated to generating enthusiasm for social action, volunteerism, and philanthropy in elementary school-aged children. Our mission is to inspire children to have a lifelong commitment to take action to help address local and global problems that they see in the world.
We Are What We Do is a not-for-profit behaviour change company that creates ways for millions of people to do more small, good things. We make stuff that people want to buy or use and which have positive behaviours built in, aiming to reach massive audiences and help address major social and environmental issues. At the heart of our work is the understanding that telling people what to do doesn’t work. So our creations are things people simply like, which incidentally help them to do more.
Trash is first collected by a sanitation department or private trash collection company. All the trash is then brought to a garbage transfer station. The solid waste that cannot be sorted into reusable material is brought to a landfill. In America, 80 percent of our waste is buried in landfills. Some materials in landfills decompose much faster than others. Plastic and tin take hundreds of years to decompose, and plastic foam never decomposes. Waste-to-energy facilities can burn trash and use the energy from the fire to produce electricity for the community.
