"Unwasted: The Future of Business on Earth" - Beyond Recycling - Documentary

"Unwasted: The Future of Business on Earth" - Beyond Recycling - Documentary | Community Recycling | Scoop.it

 

 

                                   DOCUMENTARY (54.27)

             "UNWASTED: THE FUTURE OF BUSINESS ON EARTH"

A close look at companies who are working on creating a less wasteful, more cost-effective and environmentally tenable society.

There is no waste in nature. When a tree falls it's only halfway through its life. When a bear or animal finishes eating food and processes it in its body that becomes fertilizer for future life in the forest flora.

So it's a beautiful thing the way nature has worked this all out. There is no waste in nature; the human animal is in fact the only animal on the planet to create waste that nature cannot process.

The reason you should care about this is because that's going to make a difference for the environment, for the economy, for your costs, for all the things you care about. In economics there's this term of "externalities" and there's a lot of cost out there that we collectively bear as a society, whether it's habitat destruction, whether it's cost that are directly being imposed on us the citizens who didn't ask for those costs to be put on us.  http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/unwasted-future-business-earth/

▶ MORE WITH LESS:  WHAT WOULD NATURE DO?

We are using resources faster than they replenish -- from fossil fuel reserves and groundwater to the thousands of plant and animal species now permanently lost from our planet.

   To support outer efforts towards sustainability we need to radically adjust our inner attitudes toward the material world. Relationships based on greed, over-identification with ownership, and the use of material goods to establish status and power over others, can be traded for new values and ways of living that empower a healthy and dignified relationship to all the earth's resources.

Being responsible for recycling 100% of our waste is an essential part of the Zero Footprint equation.  If we don't do it ourselves, we are making someone else do it.   How selfish is that?

A WAKE-UP CSR WATCH = "Inside the Garbage of the World" = The Plastic Curse

A WAKE-UP CSR WATCH  = "Inside the Garbage of the World" = The Plastic Curse | Community Recycling | Scoop.it

 

                                                      WATCH

                       "INSIDE THE GARBAGE OF THE WORLD" (80 min)

                                           The Plastic Curse

A documentary that will give you an honest idea of how much contamination we are generating and how quickly we have to halt it in order to withstand the future.

 

We're living on a beautiful planet and as a human race we've been here for thousands of years. Our planet didn't need to be protected; life was flourishing on its own, with its own agenda. However for the past 100 years we've made a tremendous impact with our footprint due to the growth of world population and the industrialization of our everyday life. Economy, profit and capitalization became more important than respecting our planet and an ancient knowledge to advance a new way of life.

Today we're at the threshold that can't be reversed if we don't stop consuming the way we do as a human race. Pollution is becoming a devastatingly huge problem that will endanger humanity for generations to come. One such pollutant is our use of single-use plastic. Civilization is plainly on an irrational course and the situation currently is close to hopeless. If we don't fix what we're doing to the oceans we'll ruin the building blocks of life.

Everything we share, which is the ocean, belongs not to corporations or any individual. It belongs to the world as a whole and that's getting trashed. When we start losing those resources we'll lose our very quality of life. Our business system, environment system and our social system is not going to survive... it cannot survive. All the other species are suffering because of us. We'll also lose the ability our future generations to enjoy the quality of life that we were fortunate enough to have.
