How long does it take to decompose?
I saw this interesting chart. it is crazy that is takes diapers 550years to decompose. We try to recycle whenever possible and limit our use of one time use products.
Very interesting list. Never knew some things took so long to break down.
Whoa.. that's insane Katie.. and ironic.. my Husband is a Heavy Equipment Operator at one of the bigger landfills across the country.. they bring in 4500 TONS of trash a day which is even hard for me to wrap my head around.. although more recently there has been talk of digging UP the previous landfill from years and years ago to start recycling that waste at a huge new facility.. pretty crazy!
