"If civilization has risen from the Stone Age, it can rise again from the Wastepaper Age."

Americans, comprising 5% of the world population, produce 40% of the world's waste. About half of the waste generated is paper or paper products. By burying trash, or burning it, we pollute our air, water, and soil, and waste resources that could be reclaimed.

UHD students explored this issue through their research projects and volunteer activities with Mothers for Clean Air on Earth Day Houston 2009, and Earth Day UHD 2009.
