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.
Every day we spend debating between burying or burning our waste is a day that we could have spent using real solutions to stop waste before it starts.
