Take a look at http://www.chrisjordan.com/ and run the numbers of every day consumption…some thing’s gotta be wrong around here…You can see photos of:
- 426,000 cell phones, equal to the number of cell phones retired in the US every day.
- 410,000 paper cups, equal to the number of disposal hot-beverage paper cups used in the US every fifteen minutes.
- two million plastic beverage bottles, the number used in the US every five minutes.
- 8 million toothpicks, equal to the number of trees harvested in the US every month to make the paper for mail order catalogs.
- 106,000 aluminum cans, the number used in the US every thirty seconds.
Scary, amazing art though.
