Gunther Pauli: Zero Waste

"Going Green" via recycling doesn't always prove effective and might even be counter-productive; as stated, the idea mostly just makes us feel good about ourselves and our wasteful lifestyles. So... what's the solution? Develop *systems* that produce NO waste. NATURE IS A GREAT TEACHER! It's the lifework of entrepreneur Gunther Pauli, who (for one) established ZERI: Zero Emissions Research & Initiatives. The author of The Blue Economy, he's documented that it can be done!
