[greenyes] what is ZW?

Hi all,

I just pulled this off the website of Earthlife Africa . and it's great! <>

"Much of the challenge then and still continuing is the perception that
Zero Waste is a goal. If Zero Waste is not a goal, what then is it?
Zero Waste is a process - a way of thinking that seeks to change how
society manages its natural resources and products by eliminating the
use of toxic substances at production while reclaiming those materials
that can be recycled, reused or composted. To achieve these objectives
Zero Waste promotes the use of non-toxic alternatives by influencing
changes in industrial processes and products through supportive policies
and legislation that may include incentives for the reduction,
recycling, reuse and composting of reclaimed materials."
