For our show on July 11th, host Terri Wilke will speak with several local purveyors of bulk household products so that consumers can simply refill the empty containers we already have.

Zero waste is a set of principles focused on waste prevention that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles so that all products are reused. The goal is for no trash to be sent to landfills, incinerators or the ocean. Currently, only 9% of plastic is recycled.

Guests include:

Gabriella from Green Utopia mailto:@greenutopiaKC

Kristen Edwards from Top Off Refillery

Jasmine from Less is More

Megan Smith from Perennial Bee

Almost every product we use is available in bulk so that people can refill existing containers. Many grains, legumes and nuts are also available in bulk.  This show will explain how, where and why this is important. Zero waste is a perception change. It requires rethinking what we have traditionally regarded as garbage and treating all materials as valued resources instead of items to discard.

George Carlin said “we (meaning people in general) are arrogant to think we (usually meaning they) are a threat to the planet. This planet put up with dinosaurs for 165 million years then waited another 65 million before putting up with people. Do any of you think people, humans, can last 165 million years?”
