This Town In Japan Has Found A Way To Produce No Trash

December 16, 2015

Kamikatsu, a small town on Japan's Shikoku island, has a vigorous recycling program.

Since the "Zero Waste" program began in 2003, 80% of the town's garbage is recycled, reused, or composted. By 2020, the program's goal is to be 100% waste free.

While residents admit the program can be hard work, they're already seeing the benefits of their efforts.
