Trash is consequences you can touch. It’s the very last step in a long chain of extraction that does real harm to people and the planet. When we find ways to eliminate waste we not only avoid that harm, we build up alternatives too!

This exponential rise in production places an incredibly heavy burden on the people and animals that have to live near or among the things we throw away. Couple that with the fact that 90% of a product’s environmental impact happens before you even open the package and we start to understand the true scale of the problem we’re facing. #zerowaste #environment
