-- Quote of the Day --
"To reach zero waste we need a combination of community and industrial responsibility. If we can't reuse it, recycle it or compost it, industry shouldn't be making it. More than anything else zero waste is a design problem. The task for the 21st Century is to design waste out of the system.”
~ Dr. Connett
