|Going Zero Waste||The simple answer: We aim to send nothing to a landfill. We reduce what we need, reuse as much as we can, send little to be recycled, and compost what we cannot.
The less simple answer: It's really about redefining the system. We currently live in a linear economy where we take resources from the earth and then dump them in a giant hole in the ground. The goal of zero waste is to move to a circular economy where we write trash out of existence. The circular economy mimics nature in that there is no trash in nature.
Instead of discarding resources, we create a system where all resources can be resumed fully back into the system.

|Steyning 10:10||10:10 started out a nationwide campaign to unite every sector of British society behind one simple idea: that by working together we can achieve a 10% cut in the UK’s carbon emissions in 2010. It’s developed and expanded since then. It’s now a global campaign, with supporters in 186 countries. And it’s carrying on beyond 2010, since the key message is still the same – we all need to do more to cut our carbon emissions, and a target of a 10% cut in the first year is a good place to start.||http://www.1010steyning.org/|
