We all want a voice, because in having one, then we can be heard.
Archaeologists have long since been the historical voice through their archaeologist digs. You can learn a lot through the remains, and that remains true for both ancient and modern day trash. In that way, archaeologists are trashologists or garbologists!
Just like the Lorax spoke for the trees, these resources below speak for the trash. The video (🎥) may bring a smile, the book (📙) of poems might bring some enjoyment, and the experiments (🧪) might bring some hands on science... but more than that, hopefully they cause you to pause and rethink what you are using in order to go forward making different choices.
