"To truly understand the concept of zero waste, it's essential that we dig into the current state of waste and waste management. In this, the first episode of Love Zero Waste, you'll learn more about why the amount of waste is increasing every year, what happens with your waste after you chuck it and we introduce you to the 12...ish Rs of zero waste. We'll even tap into the unknowns of the 'invisible waste'. You'll meet Anna-Carin Gripwall, head of communication at the Swedish Waste Management Association (Avfall Sverige) and we're paying a visit to Jochen Pach, head of projects and material flow management at Holding Graz Waste Management." -from Love Zero Waste podcast
