Our daily life is strictly connected with products and their use. At the end of their use, often even without using them to their full potential, we simply discard them or throw them away and the object becomes trash.
In fact, solid waste management is a challenging global problem of our times. If we all look at our own daily lives it is not difficult to realize that we produce an enormous amount of waste every single day. Plastic bottles, packaging, disposable coffee cups, tissue paper, food scraps and leftovers, etc - the list goes on.
‘No Impact Man’, a book by Colin Beavan, popularized the concept of ‘zero waste’. A zero waste lifestyle aims to eliminate the production of garbage, not throwing anything in the trash or into the landfill.
If everyone could start adopting some of these habits, we could save thousands of tons of trash from landfills, improve air and water quality, and even save some money in the process.
Some questions we would be looking at answering at this forum would include:
- Is it possible to live a zero waste lifestyle, or is it merely a hypothetical concept?
- What are the challenges?
