Although people might think zero waste is a new concept introduced to society with Sustainability issues, it is not. For many years we can talk about this, from clothes production, to composting and up to a variety of things where we can apply it.
A good example of this is in the Fashion Industry, where Kimonos, Saris and other traditional costumes use all fabric and leave no traces. Also, in traditional communities where plastic is not that present, composting is way more present since there’s no trash bags or bins to throw them away. It’s a natural process to give back to nature what she has given us.
Right now, our world produces 270 million tonnes of Global Primary Plastic per year. Is it really necessary? And, if these numbers scares you, the Global Plastic Waste is 275 million tonnes a year, more than we produce. That means we’re leading into a global chrysis. From the 80’s since today, numbers keep growing frighteningly.
Zero Waste Journey is meant for those who agree that we need and must make a change in our habits, because our world is slowly dying. Global warming keeps growing up everyday and it is our job to take care of the world that has always taken care of us.
Sustainability is not meant to be expensive or just for a portion of society that has money for access to eco-friendly products, and that is our mission here at The Refill Bus, give access to sustainable products to low income communities.
