Missoula & Zero Waste!

In conjunction with the National Earth Day Network, this year’s theme is “Ending Plastic Pollution: Missoula & Zero Waste.”

What is Zero Waste?

The Missoula Zero Waste Resolution adopts the concept of Zero Waste as defined by the Zero Waste International Alliance:

“Zero Waste is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, to guide people in changing their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use.

Zero Waste means designing and managing products and processes to systematically avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, conserve and recover all resources, and not burn or bury them.

Implementing Zero Waste will eliminate all discharges to land, water or air that are a threat to planetary, human, animal or plant health.”

To learn more about Zero Waste watch the Zero Waste Presentation by Jeremy Drake and Katie Deuel from Home ReSource. This presentation was given to the Committee of the Whole of the Missoula City Council and explained the need for the City of Missoula to start down a Zero Waste path. More info can also be found at the City of Missoula’s webpage here.
