Zero Waste is a philosophy and a lifestyle that encourages a circular system where each item that is produced and consumed either becomes a resource for others to use or goes back to the land in a manner that is safe and sustainable

It is based on 5 tenets: REFUSE, REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE, ROT 

The Zero Waste lifestyle requires conscious consumption. Because we live in a linear society where items are designed to be thrown out, it is our responsibility to make conscious decisions about how what we buy and use affect our planet.
