In Garbage Dreams you visit the world’s largest garbage village, on the outskirts of Cairo. It is the home to 60,000 Zaballeen, Arabic for garbage people. Far ahead of any modern green initiatives, the Zaballeen survive by recycling 80 percent of the garbage they collect. Take on the role of the Zaballeen.
Our planet has a garbage problem. We simply consume too much and produce too much waste, while we reuse or recycle too little. What isn’t recycled is frequently placed in landfills, burned, or left where it can damage the environment.
