NEW ZEALAND FIRST COUNTRY TO ADOPT ZERO WASTE
On March 1st New Zealand became the first country in the world to adopt a
national vision of zero waste. The new strategy, subtitled  - 'Towards zero
waste and a sustainable New Zealand' recognises the groundswell of public
support that has grown for the adoption of Zero Waste as a national goal
over the last few years. With nearly 50% of  councils committed to zero
waste and numerous community groups, businesses and schools working in their
communities to achieve it, the grassroots message to Government was quite
clear. The strategy document doesn't say how we'll reach zero, but it is a
good starting point and much needed support for all those who have been
working for change over the last 10-12 years.
For more information on the strategy visit the Ministry for the
Environment's website http://www.mfe.govt.nz/new/index.htm
