Our planet is facing mounting crises - including plastic waste, scarcity of fresh water and supply chain disruptions - that are influencing the livability and sustainability of our world. According to a report from The City College of New York, nearly 300 million tons of solid waste a year is generated in the U.S. with the number continuing to rise as the population grows.
