why does an australian person produce more trash then an german or japanese person?

    This must have to do with a culture or mindset of wastefulness. A study indicated that Australians wasted more than $1,244 on purchased, unused products in 2004. Most of the waste was in the form of food or unused clothing. Although the study revealed that Australians are concerned about the environment, many don’t appear to take responsibility for this. It is difficult to say for sure why, but there are some major differences in the way Australians live as opposed to Japan and Germany. Japan and Germany are more densely packed countries, with more centralized urban areas. Wastefulness effects everyone in such environments, leading to unhealthy and dirty cities. There often appears to be somewhat of a correlation between a citizen’s sense of responsibility for the environment, and the density of population in their area.
