      Great project. Awareness of this may chnge behavior. My family switched over to reusable things and recycling as much as possible as a way of life. I did not grow up this way, but thankfully I got educated.
      For anybody looking to reduce their impact on the environment, especially with putting things in our landfills that don't break down quickly, make sure you patronize businesses that make sustainable options more convenient.
