We live in a society where a linear economy is a norm. Where there is the extraction of resources, products are produced and then disposed of as waste. The linear economy is a broken form. This throwaway system has caused significant environmental and health issues, such as:
- The toxic waste buildup can contaminate groundwater, damage crops, and cause serious health problems.
- Landfills produce methane gas that can cause significant damage to our ecosystem and chronic and terminal diseases.
- Dust, pollution, and particulate matter are causing respiratory problems to residents nearby.
- Nearby residents have to deal with bad odors and insect infestations.
