Author : Tom Szaky
Imprint : San Francisco : Berret Koehler Publishers, 2014
Pagination : 156 pages
Synopsis :
"Garbage doesn't exist in nature the output of one organism is the
useful input of another. So why does garbage exist in the human
system? Why did it only become a problem the past century? And most
importantly, how can we eliminate it outsmart the very idea of garbage?
Eco-entrepreneur Tom Szaky says that to outsmart waste first we have to understand it, then change
how we create it, and finally rethink what we do with it. He traces the roots of our current garbage
crisis to 20th century technological advances that resulted in historic changes in consuming habits
both the amount of garbage created and its longevity increased dramatically. Szaky argues we can
turn this around by changing what we buy, when we buy, why we buy, and what we do with what
we've bought. And through innovative recycling and creative "upcycling" (creating new products
from discarded objects) we can stop seeing garbage as useless waste and start seeing it as useful
waste a tremendous volume of resources that are simply misunderstood. After reading this mindexpanding book you will never think of garbage the same way again"
