Research: Our land is very dirty "according to the Envoronmental Protectin Agency, the average American produces about 4.4 pounds (2kg) of garbage a day, or a total of 29 pounds (13 kg) per week and 1,600 pounds (726 kg) a year". I don't know if you think that's a lot but I do. All of us buy cool or expensive shoes to look nice. So what's the problem with getting shoes to make our earth look good. If you don't want to buy a new shoe you can reuse an old one. Most of us are just getting more lazy as we grow up through the years. We can stop that just by walking to school or playing outside with friends. It doesn't even take that much work. You won't ever notice you're cleaning. It's just one more step to save the earth.
