Garbage Land: on the Secret Trail of Trash

Brooklyn author Elisabeth Royte has followed her garbage from her apartment to landfill sites to recycling centers, followed her waste down the toilet and has written Garbageland: On the Secret Trail of Trash. She tries to reduce her garbage output- "I began to slice my banana peels into squares the size of Wheat Thins and whittle my celery stalks into matchsticks". She interviews zero waste advocates who obsess over the re-use of twist ties. Look forward to a review soon. ::Garbage Land thanks, tipster Lucy
