Episode Summary

The average person tosses 102 tons of garbage away in their lifetime. Every year we use enough plastic film to cover food to shrink-wrap the state of Texas. So how do we get rid our trash? Witness first hand how NYC takes trash from your door to its final resting place as a landfill park. But decades of plastic dumping have already created a swirling vortex of trash in the Pacific Ocean the size of California. Is their any hope? We track down the latest applications of recycling, to explore energy conversion and beyond. Join host Daniel Wilson as he takes us on a transformative journey that reveals the extraordinary in everyday things.moreless
