Price: FREE

Municipal landfills are closing at an increasing rate because space is simply running out. Recycling will help, but even the best-case predictions tell us that it simply won’t be enough.

In this exercise the properties of two space-filling packing materials will be examined and the results considered in light of what their respective environmental costs and benefits might be.
