Desde 2003, os moradores de Kamikatsu, Japão, adotaram sem dúvida o programa de reciclagem mais rigoroso do mundo.

Com 34 categorias diferentes para separar seu lixo, os moradores têm cortado custos para a comunidade e melhorou drasticamente a vida selvagem circundante de sua exuberante ilha.

A cidade reutiliza ou recicla 80% do seu lixo.

Em sua taxa atual, as autoridades prevêem que chegará a zero resíduos até 2020.

Muito inspirador.
