Individually and collectively, let's minimize the waste we generate— as households, schools, faith groups, and businesses. We're looking at personal habits such as purchasing, composting, and cooking choices, and neighborhood-wide actions like advocating for even more ZW-friendly garbage hauling. What other actions could we take?
Should we encourage neighbors to avoid products packaged in unrecyclable plastics (numbers 3 and 6) and ask manufacturers to change their packaging?
How can we avoid single-use plastic shopping bags? How about a reusable bag designed for Transition Town ASAP?
To share your ideas, contact us at info@TransitionASAP.org. Our society can celebrate Zero Waste when we make only products that can be reused, recycled, or otherwise contribute value after their first use. A few good websites:
