That’s how much it would take to haul away just one day’s trash in America. The average American throws away 4.4 pounds of trash every day of their lives, and while that may not sound like much… it adds up—to 728,000 pounds of trash a day, to be exact. That’s why when we retire a watch, we do everything we can to make sure it never sees a landfill. And actually, we love the fact that we can pass steep savings onto you at the same time. But real quick, let’s talk about WHY it’s so important to conserve… with 8 facts about climate change that you need to know.
