Zero Waste UK – For a planet without waste
Our mission is to increase the visibility and uptake of zero waste practices in the UK and beyond…
Zero waste is about thinking critically and creatively about how waste can be eliminated before it has even been produced. This is in contrast to conventional end-of-pipe waste management strategies (e.g. incineration or landfill management) which are oriented around the assumption that waste is inevitable.
The vision of Zero Waste UK is a planet without waste, where economies are circular and everything that is produced or consumed is returned back to nature or society. Zero waste seeks to transform the way we consume and produce so that we safeguard the health and improve the lives of everyone who produces, works with or is affected by waste – in other words, all of us.
