Description

Trash: archaeologists dig it; cities build on it; recyclers buy and sell it. Waste has become big business and like all commodities it can be parsed mighty fine. Curbside novices may know a green-bin item from irredeemable dross, but the cognoscenti distinguish between garbage, trash, refuse, junk, and rubbish. This deck of 48 cards dissects those distinctions, probes the history of waste from the Stone Age to the space age, tracks the movement of garbage across state lines, and exposes the long suppressed truth about diapers and landfill. Whether you quiz yourself or organize a quiz game for family and friends, Talking Trash covers the universe of castoffs, each card unveiling unexpected facts you'll want to recycle.show more
