Zero waste - there is no garbage. There are no landfills. There is
no "away". All materials remain part of a closed loop system. In
nature, nothing is wasted. Material from one organism becomes food
for other organisms, maintaining the closed loop system. By
mimicking the natural world, we identify new opportunities for
triple bottom line success.
Currently, human society follows a linear take - make - waste
process. This model is an end of the pipe solution.
The following model illustrates a process that eliminates waste
from the very beginning by changing the way we think and design our
products and services.
