Almost every day I feel the guilt-ridden tension between working to build the just and sustainable Zero Waste world we all need, and just trying to get by with two young kids in the toxic, climate-damaging, waste-filled world we’re stuck with right now. I do my best to make choices that will hopefully create a better world for my kids, but I know that individual choices mean nothing without the systemic changes we all need.
From My Experience
A year ago, our small, mighty crew launched a new nonprofit to advance community-centered Zero Waste solutions across the country. What has unfolded surpassed even our boldest goals.
Reuse systems are in our reach. And they could be easily integrated into our everyday lives. Now is the time to act. Our country’s single-use culture is damaging the health of our planet and its people.
Doing the right thing with food waste is a good investment in our health, soil, and future. Someday, we might actually stop calling it “waste.”
