A zero-waste lifestyle means you opt for sustainable and reusable alternatives and strive to send as little as possible to landfills.
This implies replacing as much as possible with reusable products, including clothing, food and drink packaging, and hygiene products, composting what you can, and then only sending a small part of waste to landfills.
Zero-waste is impossible, but the visionary term is not about perfection. It's about making a conscious effort to make better choices.
The goal of zero waste is to move to a circular economy, which is where rubbish has no existence. Instead of discarding valuable resources, creating a circular economy proposes reusing items or sending them to be recycled so they can be used fully in the system.
A landfill site or rubbish dump is a site for dumping waste materials.
The success of any zero waste goal relies on the education and participation of communities and business organisations.
Start by looking through your trash and recycling bins to see what you're throwing out the most.
Paper produces about 60-80% of waste. Think before you print. Consider pull-printing as 30% of printing is never collected from the printer.
