“Before enrolling in this course, I had minimal knowledge about zero waste. This course opened my eyes to the fact that zero waste is much more than not disposing one’s waste properly. However, it takes into consideration the materials used by industries to make their products and the impact they have on the environment. Additionally, how we consume products and what is the end result of each product. Zero waste encourages reuse and recovery of products without burning and without discharges to our environment. Learning all of this, and identifying it as a massive environmental issue, going forward, I will pay keen attention to what I consume. I will perform a waste composition study and minimize waste as I go along. Most importantly, I will encourage those in my bubble and the wider community to engage in such practices.” – Venice
