Over 8 Large Male African Elephants So far

Yesterday I started wondering about how much I've personally contributed to landfills through my own garbage creation. As an American consumer I average 4.5 pounds per day.

That's 4.5 x 365 x 51 (my age) or 83,767.5 pounds to date on my last birthday. The average weight of an African elephant (the bigger ones) is about 10,000 pounds.

My personal garbage production stated in elephants, then, is about 8.3.

Talk about needing to lose some weight! Time for me to seriously cut back.
