Josie Tucker + Richard Ashton co-founders of @adapt_____ share their view on the experiment.
“The significant amount of waste humans produce is impossible to ignore. From big industry to local life, there are a multitude of different waste streams and systems. Waste as an issue has become so convoluted; it has become a complex problem without an easy solution, but in order for things to change, different industries need to be held accountable for the waste they produce. As a citizen, or conscious consumer, it can be daunting trying to understand the nuances of waste streams, but noticing and acknowledging these streams (large or small) is a first and crucial step. We have created The Waste Database to help people notice different forms of waste from themselves and others but also for us to get a clearer understanding of all the things that people waste in their daily lives, from produce to energy to time – it all contributes to the bigger picture!”
