Welcome to WeHateToWaste
Are you always pounding the ketchup bottle, swirling the water inside the shampoo looking to get that very last drop?
Do you find yourself fishing other people’s Coke cans out of the trash for recycling?
Do you wish your company did more to recycle?
Get pleasure from fixing the unfixable? Mending a sock? Salvaging a set of sheets?
(And chances are, we could go on…)
Then WeHateToWaste.com is for you!
We Are a Community of People Who are Passionate about Ridding the World of Waste.
We’ve found untold creative ways over the course of our lives to eradicate waste at home, in the kitchen and the yard, at the office, and on the go. And we’re always looking for more to do. So we love learning new things and swapping our latest finds with others.
We want to reduce waste in our lives, and as part of that influence others – family, co-workers, even businesses and government.
We know something special: that we can live better by reducing waste, save money that can be used for other things, and we wish everyone else would know this too!
We Created WeHateToWaste to Help You Take Your Waste Game to the Next Level.
We’re a global community of green moms and ‘Green Team’ leaders, policymakers, and town leaders, business leaders and thought leaders. We come from a broad range of cultures, each with unique approaches to stretching resources, living efficiently and living better.
We’ve come together to share and learn new things about what we can do personally, and how we can influence others. It’s a place to find community and ideally and join together to form a movement that can grow and share the good news with everybody else in the world. And just in time…
We All Know We Will Get to a Waste-Free World Faster If We Share
It’s projected that 9.6 billion people will be on the planet by 2050, and 3 billion more consumers will be moving into the middle class in the emerging (“BRIC”) economies by 2030. How will we find the resources to feed, clothe and shelter them all when we’re running out of resources now?
When we share what it is that we do to reduce waste on WeHateToWaste.com, we’re sharing with the larger world, showing them how to reduce waste without sacrifice. And every time we share, we’re a step closer to making reducing waste the cool thing to do.
We Believe That Creating a Waste-Free World is Possible and Worth Working Towards
It’s the millions of little (and sometimes big) things that millions of people do every day that add up to make a big difference. It’s about adopting a no-waste mindset. A mindset with 7 seven facets. It’s the lens through which we guide our lives, and the organizing principle for WeHateToWaste. Learn more about the No-Waste Mindset HERE.
