Jessica Aldridge, Adventures in Waste
Jessica Aldridge, founder of Adventures in Waste, making space for women in the waste management industry. Highlights: Colonialism through consumerism is dumping “first world” waste in indigenous communities around the world. “A New Waste Paradigm is Inevitable.” – – Regrann from @proyectojardin
But in the meantime: In California we create about 10 lbs of waste per person daily.
The US is 5% of world population, but we represent 30% of consumerism and create 30% of waste production. Our recycling rate is only 9%. In CA, the second largest source of methane is landfill. Foodwaste is 30% of the material in landfill.
If foodwaste were a country, it would be the 3rd largest producer of greenhouse gases.

Cayos Cochinos, Honduras, Jessica Aldridge
The beautiful shores of Cayos Cochinos in Honduras are scattered with discarded plastic washed up from the mainland countries that line the Atlantic Ocean.
The Cayos Cochinos or Cochinos Cays are a group of two small islands and 13 more small coral cays situated 30 kilometres northeast of La Ceiba on the northern shores of Honduras.
