Can your local college jump-start Zero Waste in your community?
College students are launching impressive Zero Waste initiatives on their campuses, but their success is often limited by the lack of community-wide Zero Waste infrastructure. Now students and administrators are finding new roles that help move the entire community toward Zero Waste.
Zero Waste, Las Vegas and the “Trash Industry”
What was Eco-Cycle Solutions Director Eric Lombardi, a guy who advocates for the end of all waste, doing at a conference where everyone else makes a living due to the abundance of trash?
Does waste affect our well-being?
We’ve come a long way in 50 years: Our streets and rivers are no longer lined with litter and backyard burning is mostly taboo. But our overproduction of trash still degrades our well-being. To change this, we need to prioritize future programs based on community benefits, not just economics.
Ontario goes big for Zero Waste
The new Waste-Free Ontario Act calls for the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario’s history. The plan is driven by four goals: create jobs, fight climate change, reduce waste and recoup the estimated $1 billion in resources buried in landfills each year in Canada.
