Day 7: Zero Waste Town

Check out this small Japanese town that produces no trash. How amazing is that? I remember my dad moved to the suburbs outside of Tokyo when I was in college and when I came home to visit for Christmas, I was appalled by his eleven tiny trashcans lined up in a row in the kitchen. You had to separate everything for recycling and if you made a mistake, the trash collectors would leave your trash in shame in front of your house. I thought it was so annoying at the time but it turns out to be an effective way to produce less waste. Ruvvy Japan.
