Waste
Try to guess what the following images are.
What is this?
426,000 cell phones discarded daily.
What is this?
200,000 cigarette packs, the same number of Americans who die every six months due to smoking.
What is this?
Set-up of thousands of small pictures, showing the traces of 11,000 planes, the number of commercial flights taking place in the U.S. every 8 hours.
65,000 cigarettes. The number of Americans under 18 that start smoking every month.
1 million of plastic cups trashed every six hours in commercial flights.
60,000 plastic bags, discarded every 5 seconds.
2 million plastic bottles, dumped every 5 minutes.
This is not a picture.
Itís 106,000 aluminium cans, thrown into the garbage every 30 seconds.
This is WASTE ART.
These pictures are part of the exhibit "Running the Numbers, an American Self Portait", of photographer Chris Jordan, highlighting the millions of objects that accumulate in the planet, well beyond our sight.

The numbers mentioned were obtained from the quantities of waste discarded only in the United States.
Imagine what world figures are!
