Is Zero Waste Possible?
Where Anything Exists There is Waste.
“Invisible waste” refers to the amount of waste and greenhouse gas emissions, generated by a product or an action.
- LINEAR vs CIRCULAR ECONOMY
The Circular Economy is a model of production and consumption, which involves:
- sharing, renting, repurposing, reusing, repairing, refurbishing, and recycling existing materials and products as long as possible.
In that way, the life cycle of products is extended.
When it comes to reducing greenhouse gases, a circular economy can be beneficial.
It often uses renewable energy that creates less pollution than fossil fuels.
The Linear Economy wherein Zero waste isn’t possible since our current economy is linear.
A linear economy is following the “take-make-dispose” system. This means that:
- we use raw materials
- we transform them into products
- we use the products for some time
- finally, we discard it as waste
The ultimate goal is to create and sell as many products as possible.
Remember, invisible waste is YOU using STUFF.
You will Own NOTHING and You Will be HAPPY.
REAL GOAL ‘FEWER’ PEOPLE – LESS STUFF USED
THAT IS ‘ZERO WASTE”
