The roots of the “green” movement, now present throughout the world, originated during the industrial revolution as citizens first became aware of the negative impacts of pollution. Today, with ever-increasing amounts of waste generated by consumers and our industrial complex that manufactures all of the products used by our modern society, as junk haulers we see the environmental challenges affiliated with waste and junk disposal on a daily basis. At Fast Haul, we strive to recycle as high of a percentage of the junk and trash that we pick-up as possible. In the infographic below, we are paying tribute to the roots and development and the green movement that continues to grow and expand today. Highlights include the major expansion of the National Parks system by President Franklin Roosevelt, the establishment of “Earth Day” and founding of Greenpeace in the early seventies, the 1992 UN Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, and the city of San Francisco’s ambitious “Zero Waste” program that aims to make S.F. the first municipality to be “waste-free” (i.e. all waste recycled, composted or otherwise re-used) by the year 2020.
