Trash Talk
Reviewed Mary Hill
 
We all have to deal with it: trash. It piles up quick. Trash affects the environment in numerous ways. Filled with facts about how garbage damages our world, Trash Talk by Dave and Lillian Brummet mixes facts with practical actions. The authors lament environmental news is often dismal. Many North Americans feel helpless when they hear news about species extinction; diseases caused by pollution; ozone depletion; and numerous other catchphrases of environmental doom.
 
The Brummets offer their book, Trash Talk, to inspire readers to take small actions to make a difference beginning in their local communities. The first chapter starts by encouraging citizens of North America to go beyond the three R’s of recycling (Reuse, Reduce, and Recycle). They encourage us to start with a new precept: refuse to be a part of the waste cycle. They write we should “restructure our shopping habits” by purchasing products made from recycled materials and buying “eco-certified products.”
 
Ease of access to information is the major strength of this book. A detailed table of contents allows quick page turning to a myriad of ideas on how to help save the environment. Another bonus is that many of Brummet’s ideas for saving environmental resources also help the family budget.
