Revolutionaries rarely get to see worldwide acceptance and admiration for their ideas, if at all.
For example, Martin Luther King Jr. never lived to see the first black president of the United States. Susan B. Anthony never lived to see women receive the right to vote. Thomas Edison could not have imagined half of the things we're doing today with electricity.
And people like Lauren Singer and Bea Johnson—huge proponents of the zero waste movement—probably won't get to experience a completely clean planet (without our 5+ trillion pieces of plastic pollution and 250,000 tons of waste).
Chances are none of us alive today will see an end to all pollution either.
But is it possible?
Yes and this is where we come in. Here at Zero Waste Globe, we believe that our generation can be the first to both ignite a revolution and watch it change the world right before our very eyes.
Do you want to know how we can have a plastic-free Earth during our lifetime?
First, we must help everybody recognize what the significant issues are.
Single-use plastic, abandoned commercial fishing nets, and inefficient waste management are all at the top of the list. These items and more are responsible for polluting our lands, damaging marine life, and infecting the food chain.
Next, we must push for change in our neighborhoods, our cities, our states, and in our governments. We need to take action and demand transparency, sustainable production systems, and that industries be held accountable.
Zero Waste Globe's mission is to raise awareness of plastic pollution and empower individuals to live a more sustainable life by offering actionable information and eco-friendly products.
Let's save the world together!
