Malaysia is the latest country to ban trash imports from developed countries. As more governments begin to recognize the soil and water damage from accepting other people’s garbage, developed nations will increasingly need to address the issue at home.

The solution to the world’s trash problem is to make it easier to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

By adopting the principles of a circular economy, we will be healthier, happier, and richer as a result.

The governments of 187 countries have signed it. The U.S. is just one of two countries that have not.
