EcoJustice Radio – We Can’t Burn Our Way to Zero Waste – Ep. 18

Share

Why is incineration in direct opposition with Zero Waste and social and environmental justice? Hear from local and international groups working together to fight this beastly issue.

Per the internationally recognized definition of Zero Waste, products should be managed in a way that avoids and eliminates toxicity, conserves resources and does not burn nor bury them. It also states that any and all elements there in should work to eliminate toxic discharges to land, water and air. Burning our waste falls short of this equation while negatively effecting front line communities!

Host Jessica Aldridge, of Adventures in Waste and SoCal 350, joins Ahmina Maxey of the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives, and Angelo Logan of the Moving Forward Network.
