Rethinking waste

Green (Living) Review

Waste as resource not as recyclables by Michael Smith (Veshengro) We must begin, also at home and at work, to see “waste” not as something to be thrown away because there is no away and we must see “waste” as a resource for reuse and upcycling. So-called recycling, which best should be referred to as “downcycling”, does not cut it, to be very honest, and we must seriously rethink how we handle and what we do with the waste that we generate, and we generate far too much of it.

Packaging Waste

Zero Waste

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Zero waste is a nice idea and concept but does it work as an individual action? A fair number of people around the developed world are attempting a zero waste lifestyle and claim that they are having great success. They have very little waste they produce, but for many that means waste that they can't get rid off in the various “recycling” streams. The idea of zero waste may be all the rage right now but realistic it is not really.

Zero waste myths: should we really be avoiding plastic?

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) First of all it also must be said that “zero waste” is a myth itself. There is no such thing as “zero waste”. True, paper bags can decompose, but it is not exactly zero waste to use so much energy producing something that is not designed to last.

Rethinking waste: Transforming problems into solutions

Green (Living) Review

There's an argument to be made that the only time something is actually waste is if we don't know how to put it to work, and that by making an effort to recognize so-called waste items as really being resources, we can improve our lives, our homes and communities, and perhaps our entire world.

Make things, not waste

and better still, make things out of waste. It is true that waste is generated in many ways – and no, I am not even wanting to consider human waste – and has been, probably, since almost the dawn of times. By way of reusing, repurposing and upcycling, however, many things do not have to go into the waste stream, whether they are recyclable and in the end, if we are lucky, recycled, or not. So, let's make things instead from waste.
