This is, literally, a growing global issue and more and more people will need to acquire skills to combat waste. Recent estimates put global waste production from cities alone at 1.5 billion tons, and project an increase to 2.3 billion tons by 2025 – this is a problem that’s only going to get worse. It’s vital we educate people to deal with all the related issues and impact of global waste.
