Goals for Zero Waste in Todos Santos
1.- Zero Waste is to decrease the amount of waste going to the local dump (the more people involved, less waste reaching the landfill).
2.- To promote a new culture regarding the Integral Waste Managment (Organic and Inorganic separation at source).
3.- To create awareness of Consumption by promoting the vision of the three R's: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. (Do not confuse comfort level with consumption level).
4.- To spread Environmental Awareness for the collective welfare of our community and the rest of the world (not to the future, but now!)
5. Punto Verde (Recycling Center) does Urban Minery to recover metals and raw materials without affecting the environment (Materials are given as a donation).
6. To Change the Route of consumer goods when they reach the end of their useful life, from a Linear Economy into a Circular Economy, closing the Energy Cicle.
7. Informing that Landfills are highly toxic mines. More garbage at these places, more environmental risks.
8. To ensure that the Local Society participates actively in the culture of recycling for the benefit of the environment and everyone.
