BENEFITS OF A ZERO WASTE LIFESTYLE
Committing to a zero-waste lifestyle may be a difficult undertaking to most. It entails for us to let go of our consumerist norms that we live by today and sacrifice many conveniences that modern society offers. However, these sacrifices do not come without its benefits. By living a zero-waste lifestyle, we contribute to:
Reduction of our Climate Impact
The production of goods for everyday consumption accounts for 42% of greenhouse gases. Eliminating the need for these kinds of produce will decrease the demand and lessen the quantity of its production, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Conservation of Resources
One of the principles of zero waste is to minimize consumption of disposables, and as much as possible, to reuse most of the resources that are available. This way, pollution is at a minimum.
Support of Local Circular Economy and Creating Jobs
The circulation of resources is one key aspect of zero waste, and with this comes opportunities for jobs that specialize in the repurposing of waste into something of practical use.
