ZERO WASTE VERSUS RECYCLING: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Zero Waste is not the same as recycling. It’s a much much bigger concept. It’s the goal or strategy to completely eliminate waste, not manage it. It addresses the source of the problem, creating a circular economy or “cradle to cradle” approach. In contrast, recycling focuses on the garbage problem itself at the end of an item’s short or single-use life – it’s the solution to the traditional linear or “cradle to grave” system that has come to be the norm today. On a practical level, Zero Waste means no waste is ever created because the single-use or short-term item is replaced with a product which is designed to last and with the purpose of being able to be reused, repaired and/or recycled over and over again
