In this provoking trash photo series we come face to face with the amount of garage different American families go through in a span of a single week. And the results are pretty shocking.

Asking different people to pose with a week's worth of their trash, photographer Gregg Segal uses this trash photo series as a visualization tool to really hone in on the trash problem the United States seems to have. In his ongoing series ‘7 Days of Garbage’, the photographer does a beautifully candid job portraying the amount of trash we throw in our bins and is hoping to make a difference in pushing people to become more conscious.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the average American produces more than 4 pounds of garbage per day -- which is 50% more than the amount produced by Western Europeans.
