Our goal is Zero Waste

The goal we want to reach is zero waste. This means that you use less wasteful resources but rather materials that are for example biodegradable in nature or reusable. This is because not everything we consume will be collected and recycled properly. In order to live in balance with nature, we have to reduce the use of non-biodegradable synthetic resources and find ways to collect and recycle all of it after consumption.


Nature can’t digest plastics. We have to take care of it ourselves. We need more closed material loops like cardboard recycling or scrap metal recycling. Closed-loop recycling means that all of the materials in manufactured goods can be recycled, usually for use in the same type of product. Read more about closed-loop recycling on this Wikipedia page.

“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”

Circular by Nature – Back to the Future

Until 1950 our economy was biobased and we were in balance with nature. To restore our balance with nature our future has to become biobased again. It’s time to stop single-use plastics, reduce the use of fossils and close the loops for the rest.

Why is a green lifestyle important?

Nature can’t digest plastics because this material is not biodegradable. We can use much more natural resources that are biodegradable by nature itself. Because not 100% of what we consume will be collected or recycled.

The three arrows of the recycling symbol represent the three main stages of the recycling process: recycling, reusing and reducing. Together the arrows form a closed loop. Step up and implement eco-friendly replacements in your daily life.


Join the movement! Step Up the waste hierarchy together to a goal of Zero Waste.
