  • - Hi, I'm Aria and I'm in Los Angeles.

  • - Hi, I'm Aishwarya and I live in Mumbai.

  • - My name's Luisa and I'm live in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

  • - My name is Red, I live in Tokyo.

  • - Hi, I'm Saba and I live in Berlin.

  • - I'm Giovanni and I'm from Mexico City.

  • - I wanted to see what trash looked like around the world.

  • So I contacted six BuzzFeeders, at offices around the globe

  • to go about their week, and throw away things

  • as they normally would, and at the end of the week

  • to empty out their trash, and just to sort it

  • and see what sort of trash they're producing,

  • and how they could potentially reduce their waste.

  • - [Man] Whoa.

  • - [Aishwarya] Let's put all the plastic on one side.

  • - Plastic.

  • Plastic.

  • Plastic.

  • (speaking in foreign language)

  • - [Aria] So that's more plastic here.

  • - Plastic, it just really stinks a lot right now.

  • - Make it stop, make it stop.

  • Why is there so much trash?

  • (speaking in foreign language)

  • I don't do any sorting stuff.

  • - Here in Mexico, we don't separate trash that often.

  • Finally I take my trash out, and it was weird for me

  • because it was like a weird week;

  • because I invited some friends and we have beers,

  • I eat a lot of chips, and I realized I make a lot of trash.

  • - I guess we don't really realize how much trash

  • we do tend to gather and build over the course of a week.

  • And this was a week that I would consider a light week,

  • in terms of me being at home.

  • I didn't do very much at home.

  • For a light week, I'd say that's a fairly sizeable chunk.

  • - Now honestly I'm very surprised at all the plastic

  • that I've collected, because at home I'm not into packaged.

  • Like I'm into a healthy lifestyle,

  • so at home I wouldn't collect a lot of,

  • packaged foods, and stuff like that but I guess,

  • I'm not as sustainable as I though I was.

  • - There is lots of cat food wrappers and

  • ice cream wrappers too because

  • it was very hot these past days.

  • Juice cartons.

  • Also this packaging for vegetables and salads, and grapes.

  • I don't know if it's a lot.

  • Some of it is probably not necessary.

  • This is the waste that I've produced during the week.

  • In total, I think it is a lot.

  • And I think it wouldn't be such a big problem

  • if we knew that all the recyclable parts

  • would be actually recycled.

  • (gentle music)

  • - I guess I could definitely work on myself.

  • Less takeout, more cooking, but if I cook,

  • then I should also pay attention to how

  • the vegetables and the salad and everything else,

  • all the ingredients are wrapped.

  • You can do better, Saba, is my conclusion to this.

  • (speaking in foreign language)

  • - Even if you don't produce a lot of trash,

  • you can always reduce it.

  • - When I buy a product, I never think about

  • the material it's made of.

  • I mostly just think about my convenience.

  • And I feel like now, I'm gonna be more aware and mindful

  • about the kind of trash I'm making.

  • I think everyone should just life one step at a time,

  • and if everyone does it, then it's definitely

  • gonna be a great, great future ahead.

  • - Hey, Unsolved is on a new channel, and now your part.

  • - [Both men] Subscribe here.

  • - That was my part.

- Hi, I'm Aria and I'm in Los Angeles.
