Waste is a huge problem all around the world, but especially here in the US. Let's understand our nation’s linear material economy, then understand how a circular economy works to start. Then by putting forth the best policies as well as focus our attention, words and actions toward changing, we can move toward a more sustainable future. Preferably one that recognizes that there is no such place as thrown “away.” Producers have few incentives to build products that last, to make them easy to repair, to use less packaging, or to make their goods or packaging easy to reuse, recycle or compost. In fact, it is quite the opposite. They want consumers to continually buy more. Great for short term profits. Not great for long term health, safety and vitality of our planet and race. Efforts to reduce waste should prioritize reducing material consumption first and foremost; reusing, refurbishing and repairing everything possible; and recycling or composting all remaining materials.
