"People have accumulated a frightening and environmentally devastating amount of garbage, even in outer space. This book rips from the headlines the powerful stories of some of the world's worst dumps, including Mumbai in India, Dandora in Kenya, and more. Fact boxes chronicle the legal changes made, and not made, in each place with regard to waste management. Statistics presented in sidebars on each spread illuminate the problem for readers using frighteningly true numbers. This book reinforces lessons on recycling, littering, and community activism, and concludes with instructions on how to help with Earth's garbage problem."
