Zero Waste is a Philosophy

This philosophy brings recycling into every step of the consumer system. Zero Waste encourages humanity to design products and systems that use recycled materials and discourage waste. In a nutshell, all resources used to create new products should come from recycled sources, the products should also not be thrown away, they should recycled further to create new things. Basically, waste not, want not.

“Zero Waste maximizes recycling, minimizes waste, reduces consumption and ensures that products are made to be reused, repaired or recycled back into nature or the marketplace.” says the Grass Roots Recycling Network.
