Zero Waste is a philosophy that encourages the redesign and recycling of waste resources so that all products are reused instead of being thrown away.
As part of a new approach to a more circular system, we need to embrace a more open and transparent approach to the way we operate. Publishing invoices that openly show where all our ingredients are grown and produced.
A system that welcomes debate and open communication ~ StreetCube embraces goal number 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
For us all at StreetCube, we are committed to sending nothing to landfill, and producing zero food waste.
We are committed to recycling organic plant based and meat food waste so that it can be used in composting, organic animal feed.
We also sign up to various food systems that help provide food for those with most need, which means that none of our food ever goes to waste.
The goal is for no waste is sent to landfill sites or the ocean.
The process recommended is one similar to the way that resources are reused in nature.
We ask our foodie fans to be responsible with food waste once it leaves our kitchens, and to try and dispose of any food waste responsibly in the appropriate bins provided.
The definition adopted by the Zero Waste International Alliance (ZWIA) is: Zero Waste: The conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse, and recovery of all products, packaging, and materials, without burning them, and without discharges to land, water, or air that threaten the environment or human health.
Zero Waste refers to waste management and planning approaches which emphasize waste prevention as opposed to end-of-pipe waste management.
It is a whole systems approach that aims for a massive change in the way materials flow through society, resulting in no waste.
Zero waste encompasses more than eliminating waste through recycling and reuse, it focuses on restructuring production and distribution systems to reduce waste.
Zero waste is more of a goal or ideal rather than a hard target.
Zero Waste provides guiding principles for continually working towards eliminating all wastes.
