Mal Williams is recognized as occupying a leading role in the development of Real Zero Waste (not simply zero to landfill) and sustainability principles over the last twenty years. As a founder member of Zero Waste International Alliance (www.zwia.org) he has actively promoted Zero Waste throughout the world and is now the Executive Director of The Zero Waste International Trust.
Mal’s latest focus is soil health and the role good composting of organic wastes could play to restore soil life and health and grow better, tastier, more nutritious food more locally. Mal feels that in the face of global warming and rapid population growth we must all make massive changes to the way we treat resources. Zero Waste is a key first step in moving to a circular economy and there is no time to lose.
