What is Zero Waste?
Cashel, Co. Tipperary has begun its journey towards becoming a Zero Waste community, leaving behind unsustainable consumption and waste creation and heading towards wise resource use. There are Zero Waste communities all over the globe with best practices emanating from Scotland, San Francisco, Spain and Italy.
Instead of trying to figure out which bin our waste should go into, we are asking the residents of Cashel to think about waste prevention instead through various initiatives and personal actions.
Not only does Zero Waste actions help the environment, they also save money through better consumption decisions and through a decrease in waste disposal charges.
