Sustainability Lesson Week 4 of 4 - Aina Contributors (Grades 8-11)

  1. 1. Sustainability Contributors (Ages 14-17) | November 9, 2020 Discuss the list of zero waste practices together, and talk about the timeline of transitions to zero waste living. This is meant to be a discussion about interests and possibilities. Zero waste living is not easy, and it takes time to change things over. You have to know your communities well to know what alternatives are available that can support each of your possible changes. Keep the discussion light and optimistic. This is entirely up to your family unit. There is no pressure at this point. Just talking about it is an important step. In a previous week, there was a focus on humans acting as either homo greedyus or homo thriveus, terms that are not meant to be taken literally, but to evoke an understanding of paths that humans take in their thinking and in their actions. Zero waste is clearly an attempt to be more homo thriveus, but it is not easy. It can take years for someone or a family to significantly transition towards a zero waste (or really an ultra-low waste) lifestyle. Watch this TEDx on transitioning towards becoming zero waste. Then, read through (and watch the video) this article about steps to take towards zero waste living. Activity sheet: As you watch the TEDx and read through the article, write down every single suggestion for moving towards zero waste living. Determine if you think that this is possible for you and/or your family. Time for a timeline. Again, transitioning towards zero waste living is often slow, and that’s okay. The fact that we are even doing it is meaningful. Activity sheet: Make a timeline (which is really just a list of goals with possible dates for them to be accomplished) for when you think that you and/or your family can add another zero waste practice to your lives. Use the list that you created from the TEDx video and the article as your source of zero waste practices for this timeline. You do not have to use all of them. Thriving Sustainably (Part 2): Towards Zero Waste Zero waste practices are promising, but requires a thoughtful transition over time. This does not happen immediately. Bea Johnson provides a TEDx about the many steps and actions that her family took during their transition towards a zero waste lifestyle. To be clear, it is probably more of an ultra-low waste lifestyle since they still generate some waste, but it is absolutely minimal. Zero waste is often really ultra-low waste for most people who practice it, so “zero waste” is a term that is meant to be less literal and more inspirational. 1. Explore practices of zero waste lifestyle. 2. Identify possible zero waste alternatives to common waste-producing practices.
