Why Zero Waste?

Our trash is a tangible representation of a system of extraction that is the root cause of environmental breakdown. When we eliminate waste, we divest from the linear, extractive economy.

New Stuff and the

Production Cycle

 

When we throw something away, the waste we see is just a small piece of the puzzle. The real problem is that for each pound of waste we create 7 pounds are created upstream of us. That’s because each new thing requires all kinds of extraction, shipping, refining, and packaging before it even lands in the store.

The Real Cost of Our

Trash Addiction

 

We’ve made more plastic in the last 10 years than we did in the preceding century. This exponential rise in production places an  incredibly heavy burden on the people and animals that have to live near or among the things we throw away. Couple that with the fact that 90% of a product’s environmental impact happens before it even gets to us and we start to understand the true scale of the problem we’re facing.
