Hi Zero Wasters
I have a few minutes here in Copenhagen, on my
way to Berlin
and then Davos for the international dialog.
I have not received very many responses from our announcement about the Dialog
and the Web cast. This concerns me. Several of us have invested
personal euros to broadcast this conversation and it would be a shame
to have a few Americans talking to themselves. We do that too much
On this trip we have met with elected officials in Norwich,
Stockholm, and Lund, mostly greens, and have come to
recognize that we need to provide knowledge about source separation to
these officials who are advocating for green policies. It is
apparent to me that the Waste Management Industry have done a better job
on convince people that incineration is easier and more probable then
source separation for recycling and composting. This is not to say that
greens are not for recycling, they are, but we need to demystify the
discarded components as market commodities not residuals or waste, and
show how source separation can be implemented in the C and D, trades and the
hospitality industries as well as residents.
I think the zero waste moment should ask local government to prepare zero
waste plans that include all generators and not just residents.
Most people we have talked to want to recycle and compost at work and at play
as well as at home.
This Sunday we will provide an opportunity to discuss this on a world wide
basis. I know Eric will have to get up at 2 AM to see and
participate but isn't that better then a 12 hour flight. We need to
show ourselves as well as the world that zero wasters are all over and
willing to take the intellectual and planning lead to organize
communities to better manage resources.
Please log in to our web broadcast and let us know you are there and please let
me and this list know you want to participate. If you are near
Davos, please attend.
I appreciate your involvement
