Zero Waste information and brochure
Zero Waste is a concept based on nature. Nature doesn't generate waste or pollution. What is waste for one organism is food for another.
Zero Waste focuses on reducing waste by reusing products and composting rather than recycling.
The Sierra Club Policy
The Sierra Club adopted a Zero Waste policy in 2008. It addresses not only the qauntity of waste we generate but also its toxicity and its important link to corporate responsibility and climate change.
A useful brochure "What is Zero Waste" has been created by the Sierra Club and a printable PDF file is attached. Print in landscape mode.
