This month’s ZWAC Show is about the need for enlightened architecture to promote Zero Waste. We will feature an interview with James Ferrier, CEO of New Zealand-based BioFab which aspires to create compostable products from mycelium to replace plastic.
Our Recycling Archives will feature the late Mark Gorrell, architect of multiple resource recovery parks.
This show we are featuring one of the true leaders of Zero Waste Advocacy, TED-talk veteran, Captain Charles Moore. Capt. Moore is one of the earliest enviro-warriors against ocean plastic litter. We will discuss with him the current state of the fight, changes since he began calling attention to it, promising solutions, if any, and what the future holds for him.
Our show will begin with Susan Kinsella and a curated selection of what some of recycling’s pioneers inspired them to enter the field.
