Lessons from nature


Waste = Food

This module is built around the ‘Waste equals Food’ insight that can be identified in nature. In nature everything is cycled so what looks like waste is actually food for the next cycle. For example, dead tree leaves will become soil for a new tree. Many of our current production systems take, make and dump materials. This means that the Earth’s finite resources are being lost forever. The ‘Waste equals Food’ insight can be applied to turn current linear human production systems into closed loop systems in which scarce resources are used to best effect and waste is eliminated.
