Is zero waste really Zero?

Zero Waste is a goal to aspire to as a society. Reaching zero in your daily life is practically impossible (at least in Mexico). Zero waste is goal that we have a society, and you can inspire change in your community with everyday actions. Do not stress out if you are still producing a bit of waste. Just do your best and don’t over stress it about it.

The Zero Waste Lifestyle consist on trying to minimize waste please dont stress out trying to keep you trash in a jar

 

Here I share with you a better definition of Zero Waste. 

Zero Waste is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, to guide people in changing their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use.

How to achieve this goal? Changing our lifestyle is not enough to achieve that goal. Rather than wear ourselves out using all that energy to perfect a lifestyle and individually try to hit zero … Why don’t we better act collectively in such a way that our authorities have goals regarding waste management, so that companies begin to play a more responsible role with the design of their products to eliminate all harmful discharges to the earth. and air, etc ?. Of course both things add up. Our planet needs us to have a more conscious lifestyle and to consume better and more sustainably. 

At the individual level reach Zero Waste can be hard but working as a society we can do it!
