Rebroadcast: Tips For A Zero-Waste Lifestyle


Reginald Hardwick/Illinois Newsroom

This segment originally aired in April 2021.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans produce almost five pounds of waste per person every day. Producing this amount of waste each day is unsustainable, but we can help reduce it on an individual level by making some changes to our routines. To speak more about how to go about that, The 21st was joined by a waste and sustainability consultant.
