Ways to Have Zero Waste
The average American produces approximately 4.4 lbs of trash a day, so one way to help alleviate the amount of waste going into landfills is to have labeled waste receptacles in your space. Having designated waste streams readily accessible with receptacles for landfill, paper, plastic, and compost, you can create an easy way to adopt a Zero Waste program at your home, place of business, school, or park.
According to the Zero Waste International Alliance, the term “zero waste” is defined as “the conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse, and recovery of products, packaging, and materials without burning and with no discharges to land, water, or air that threaten the environment or human health.” Using zero waste practices not only greatly minimizes the amount of trash you produce but is also a way to help reduce harmful toxins that may get into our water, dirt, and air. This not only keeps us healthier, but the planet healthier too.
