Illustration raising awareness about the excessive global waste generation.
The world generates 2.01 billion tonnes of solid waste annually, with at least 33%
of that not managed in an environmentally safe manner. Worldwide, waste generated per person per day averages 0.74kg, but ranges from 0.11 - 4.54 kg. Though they only account for 16% of the world’s population, high-income countries generate about 34%, or 683 million tonnes, of the world’s waste [link].
