What’s Zero Waste Solutions?

Apr 2, 2024

So what is Zero Waste Solutions?


Zero Waste isn’t just about recycling; it’s a whole system approach to handling resources and waste in our society.


We live in a linear society. In nature, there is no landfill. Things seamlessly circulate. What one living thing doesn’t need, another uses. The sun gives energy. Stuff grows, dies, and goes back to the soil. It works well. But, humans do things differently. Since you were born, everything you have ever used is somewhere. We take, make, and throw away. A new phone comes out, and we ditch the old one. We get coffee on the way to work, and the cup is thrown out. Each time we do this, we use up our earth’s limited resources and often generate harmful waste. This is just not sustainable. So, what can we do? If we see that nature’s way works, can we change our thinking to have a circular system?


Zero Waste is all about maximizing recycling, minimizing waste, cutting down on consumption, and ensuring products are designed to be reused, repaired, or recycled back into nature or the marketplace.


Why does it matter? Besides being great for the environment, it’s a game-changer for businesses. See, proper waste management shields companies and brands from the hefty risks linked to poorly disposed waste. And let’s be real, it’s fascinating how sustainable waste management can impact everything – from the environment to the economy, and even the weather.


And we can do something about it…today.

U-Pak’s Zero Waste Solutions aims to send nothing to landfills by recycling metals, plastics, paper, cardboard, bakery, and organics and turning waste that would be sent to a landfill into renewable energy. None of your waste ends up in a landfill…period. Instead, it gets a second life as a renewable resource.
