Nearo waste is the new zero waste. Zero waste is an inapplicable term because something always gets wasted. Nearo is the nearest to zero waste. It is a melding of the words near and zero obviously! Zero waste is a great concept but unless you run naked in the forest with a pack of wolves and use nothing you are not applying zero waste....actually one could even argue that wolves are wasting....okay you get the idea.
"Hey wanna come to this nearo waste party where there won't be any individually bottled drinks and all the food scraps will be composted?"
I am living a nearo waste lifestyle because I am breaking the habit of over-consumption and recycling plastic bottles over and over and I also compost food (nondairy and non-meat) waste!
