Seven Generations Ahead helps communities implement zero waste programs

Seven Generations Ahead (SGA) works with schools, businesses, institutions, and municipalities to provide support for all steps along a path to zero waste from planning to implementation.


What is Zero Waste?

Zero Waste is a fundamentally different approach to managing materials -- one that seeks to emulate natural cycles in which all materials are designed to become resources for others. The process involves starting with the 3 R’s (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle/Compost) and continually making incremental changes to practices while creating no emissions that harm the health of the planet or its inhabitants.

-- Based on definition by the Zero Waste International Alliance
