Since December of 2000, GAIA has helped hundreds of communities defeat crazy waste burning schemes and implement successful zero waste strategies instead. Its members have promoted creative, community-led solutions and have joined forces to demand that local, national and international policy makers protect clean air and stop giving waste companies a pass on pollution.
