We Can Build 4,500 Eiffel Towers With All the E-Waste We Made Last Year

<a href="https://earther.com/global-e-waste-just-grew-8-percent-in-two-years-1821253806" data-id="" onClick="window.ga('send', 'event', 'Permalink page click', 'Permalink page click - post header', 'standard');">We Can Build 4,500 Eiffel Towers With All the E-Waste We Made Last Year<em></em></a>

Electronic devices are getting cheaper and global incomes are rising. That would seem like good news, and it is, except for the 44.7 million metric tonnes of electronic waste these factors helped create in 2016 alone—the equivalent in weight to 4,500 Eiffel Towers. According to a United Nations-backed report released on Wednesday, this problem is only growing: Electronic waste (e-waste) per...

Just How Big Is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch?

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is greater than we ever thought. And by greater, I mean worse.

According to

research published last month , it’s “increasing exponentially and at a faster rate than in surrounding waters.” The slurry of trash and seawater loosely held together by Pacific currents spans 617,762 square miles, roughly twice the size of Texas. So yes, this garbage patch could mess...

Why I Will Never Run and Pick Up Trash

<a href="https://earther.com/why-i-will-never-run-and-pick-up-trash-1823455055" data-id="" onClick="window.ga('send', 'event', 'Permalink page click', 'Permalink page click - post header', 'standard');">Why I Will Never Run and Pick Up Trash</a>

There’s a new trend sweeping the nation—the world actually—and it’s called plogging. No, not blogging on platforms (that “plogging” came and went three years ago) but running while picking up trash. Plogging comes from the Swedish phrase “plocka upp,” which means to pick up, and publications from The Washington Post to Men’s Health are picking up on the frenzy. I, for one, never will.

How to Bring Joy to the World By Not Destroying It This Holiday Season

<a href="https://earther.com/how-to-bring-joy-to-the-world-by-not-destroying-it-this-1821099845" data-id="" onClick="window.ga('send', 'event', 'Permalink page click', 'Permalink page click - post header', 'standard');">How to Bring Joy to the World By Not Destroying It This Holiday Season</a>

The holiday season is upon us. That means warm hot chocolates, winter tunes, and all the consumerist habits environmentalists try to avoid all year. Behaving in an environmentally sound way is tough this time of year. I mean, wrapping paper is so cute—and Beyoncé always sells her own.

But all the things we buy during the holidays, including wrapping paper, are doing our planet no good. Tens of...

California’s Plastic Bag Ban Appears to Be Kicking Some Major Ass

<a href="https://earther.com/california-s-plastic-bag-ban-appears-to-be-kicking-some-1820443038" data-id="" onClick="window.ga('send', 'event', 'Permalink page click', 'Permalink page click - post header', 'standard');">California’s Plastic Bag Ban Appears to Be Kicking Some Major Ass</a>

Either California’s first-in-the-nation plastic bag ban is working really well or volunteer litter hunters are suddenly doing a horrible job.

Last November, California voters passed Proposition 67, upholding a ban on single-use plastic bags passed by the state’s lawmakers in 2014. A year later, preliminary data from thousands of volunteers who collected trash during California’s Coastal...

The man who dreamed up the Keurig K-Cup has some regrets, not just about selling his stake in the po

The man who dreamed up the Keurig K-Cup has some regrets, not just about selling his stake in the popular company for a song, but for the amount of waste the non-recyclable single-serving coffee brewing pods have generated: nine billion pods were sold last year, most of which now languish in landfills.
