The Waste Impact Category
In this last impact category module, we investigate the trash in our lives and how we can value our waste. We go beyond refuse, reduce, reuse, and recycle and learn to understand how the world is moving towards circular flows of valuable materials. You will get a taste of how to progress towards a zero-waste lifestyle, and hear from expert Mala Persaud, owner of the first zero waste store in Fairfax County, Virginia. And we deep-dive into two major waste areas of deep concern: plastic pollution and electronic waste, and how to reduce their negative impact in our lives.
