Is recycling really the answer to household waste? How do we eliminate
microplastics from our wastewater? How do we avoid consumer goods that are
designed to break? How do we stop the oceans being trashed? Towards Zero
Waste offers practical tools for change in your own kitchen, on your weekly
shop and around your home, as well as in the wider world.
Feidhlim Harty explores how and why we need to go zero waste, firstly looking
at where waste currently goes, and revealing the hidden world of food and
product miles and embodied energy. He shares how to reduce waste room by
room, at events, parties, during our travels, and at work.
Having minimised waste for over two decade, Feidhlim and his family share
their clever ideas to eliminate junk, buy wisely, free yourself from useless
packaging, reduce not only your eco footprint but your household bills, compost
all biodegradables, and reuse, repair and reroute. They share five simple steps to
zero waste and inspires us to be active and push for change.
There is a hunger now within society to address the root causes of plastic waste,
right back to the point of oil and gas extraction. People want no part in adding to
plastics in the oceans or spreading microplastics into our water, soils and food.
Nor do they want to be subjected to the cynical betrayal of consumer built-in
obsolescence. Patience with government policy and corporate greenwashing is
wearing thin. Towards Zero Waste offers clear guidance for anyone wanting to
actively be part of the solutions and not the problems in the world.
