Switzerland's Rubbish

Switzerland may have a reputation for being one of the cleanest countries in the world but the numbers reveal a very different reality. Every year, the country produces up to 90 million tonnes of waste annually – making it one of the biggest waste producers in Europe.

A few weeks ago I started documenting the waste. During my daily early morning doggy walks, I captured one or two pictures of garbage thrown away by people. This is the result of a one-week garbage picture collection:

Needless to say, that there are at least every 100 meters litter bin's available. When I see something like that, I always ask myself: "Why do people act that way?" Probably, they do it from carelessness, and a total lack of respect for their fellow humans, the local environment and the creatures who have to live there.
