Personal Action Step 5:
Treat all waste as lost profitability and lost sustainability. Like nature, insure that the idealized goal is to target having 100% of all waste reused and recycled.
If it can not be recycled, insure that it is sequestered so that it cannot harm people or the environment. This is so that all appropriate resource systems are adequately renewed and replenished and not harmed and, so that all waste recycling and reuse becomes a source for increased profitability and/or lowered costs for those so recycling and reusing their wastes.
