This discussion aims at addressing both the psychological and physical manifestation of waste. Is waste a concept of the past, with present repercussions? Which areas are waste friendly? What are the complications of having more waste? What are some solutions that we can share? Can we phase out waste? If so, what are the current methods of doing so? We often keep our private spaces clean but there is a divide between the public and private, which has physical and mental repercussions. We have multiple means to hide our waste, e.g. sending it to outer space; dumping waste into oceans that precipitate new waste continents; building cities/parks on waste buried underground (often untreated and hence harmful).
