Trash Backwards: Innovating Our Way to Zero Waste
Trash Backwards: Innovating Our Way to Zero Waste examines the various kinds of trash Americans are producing in staggering quantities, and profiles a range of innovative processes, people, and companies who are thinking creatively about how to not just reduce pressure on landfills, but redefine what’s possible in the realm of recycling. This E-ssential offers insights into the motivations and inspirations of people working on cutting edge processes of waste managemand land reclamation in America—from household trash to biowaste processing to reclaiming brownfields. We’re at a critical juncture with our waste production— and among all of the other problems on Earth (climate change, war, stagnant economies), this is the one that ingenuity, as well as a little old-fashioned conservation, can put a big din, if not solve.
