Zero Waste


-- Quote of the Day -- 

"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience."

 ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


-- Zero Waste -- 

Check out this interesting video (17.35 min) with world-renowned zero waste consultant Rick Anthony who discusses zero waste initiatives in California:


In this video Rick raises points like:

-       By putting organics back on the land we can reduce 1/3 of the water consumed to keep that land moist.
-       Enough clothes are wasted in San Diego alone that could clothe the poor in Mexico.
-       Banning reusables and recyclables from the landfill.
-       Making recycling mandatory and implementing a pay-as-you-throw fee system.
