What is America’s largest export, most prodigious product, and greatest legacy — the biggest thing we make? Our trash.
NRCM welcomed author and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Edward Humes to discuss his book, Garbology. After sharing more about America’s “dirty love affair with trash,” Humes also shared stories of hope: families, companies, and whole communities who are finding a way back from waste. NRCM’s Sarah Nichols joined to discuss with Humes what Maine is doing to tackle our problem with trash and how you can be involved.
