Session materials from “Waste Not, Want Not,” presented by Ken Mills at NASCO Institute 2016.
Do you really want to change the world? The injustice that we see all around us motivates us all to do something about it. But in many cases we feel completely powerless to the prevailing power structures. This session will give information that will take us well beyond simple recycling. Landfill diversion, composting, and zero-waste initiatives will provide the cooperative movement and individual communities the strategies needed to move forward in the future, creating a more sustainable economy and environment. This session will inspire co-opers to view what is called trash as a valuable resource. This is a protest that we can win.
