The Grassroots Recycling Network advocates going beyond recycling towards the goal of zero waste. Zero waste means not only 100% recovery of society's discards, but also a redesign of the products and packaging of our lives such that everything produced for our consumer economy is non-toxic and designed to be recovered for re-use, recycling or composting. The site has a College Zero Waste section aimed at moving towards zero waste on college campuses.
