Zero waste & plastic

Zero waste & plastics

Talking about plastics has become very trendy but we’re covering the topic from more than just one angle. Waste in general is a problem both up-stream and down-stream so we chat the company responsibility that needs to be taken, sustainable design, policies that are implemented or should exist, and our individual contribution to the problem. Plastics are derived from fossil fuels and therefore contribute to both climate change and additional physical pollution in the environment whilst so much of the products and services we use every day create waste. The easiest solution, and our defence to our waste problem, is to discuss recycling. Indeed some materials should be recycled infinitely but recycling can be energy intensive and, as most of us are now starting to learn, extremely imperfect. Digging a layer beyond ‘going zero waste’ quickly exposes a multitude of issues such as poverty, fast fashion, government (in)action, exploited labor and capitalism.
