When Olivier Giron took a trip to Peru’s Machu Picchu, known as “The Lost City of the Incas,” in 2010, it changed his life. At an elevation of nearly 8,000 feet, the ancient city had a modern surprise in store for Giron. Hundreds of large, plastic bags full of garbage had been illegally dumped there.
