Is the Regional District of Nanaimo the only organization pursuing Zero Waste?
No. The Cowichan Valley Regional District, Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, Metro Vancouver and Toronto have declared Zero Waste as their long term waste management goal. New Zealand is a leader in Zero Waste with the majority of its local councils declaring Zero Waste as their goal. A number of large corporations in the U.S. have set Zero Waste goals. This is a common sense idea that really engages people.
