Our planet’s very fiber and fabric of life is being destroyed so fast scientists from around the world have issued two dire warnings to humanity, our health and all life on Earth is at stake. Either we are not listening or it's our selfish ignorance of the needs of our living planet and others.
There's just one solution we can count on today —making our planet's health our first and foremost responsibly, by living just and sustainable, as one people and planet. This is our challenge today, as tomorrow will be too late to assure our children's future health and justice is better, not worse than today!
ZERO WASTE (TO LANDFILL( HOW IMPORTANT IS IT?
ZERO WASTE means little more than zero waste to landfill. Today there's a lot going on around reducing what goes to a landfill but little in comparison to what's not happening around reducing our excessive consumption or increasing our efficiency through reuse. For these are equally if not more important in our becoming a more responsible and sustainable (healthy) community. Before ZERO WASTE we had the 3 R's REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE. When ZERO WASTE came along It seemed to have that certain ring and sounded more like what people might be willing to do while continuing to shop for more. We need to be practicing the 3R's religiously today by shopping less globally (especially) and more locally (regional), for sustainable high quality products (less quantity, more quality) as though the health of our finite living planet and all its life depended upon it. It does!
