By 2020, the village’s 2,000 residents aim to eliminate the use of landfills and incinerators, and instead recycle or reuse every single item of household waste. The Guardian recently spent a day following the unlikely eco-warriors of Japan’s zero-waste village. Follow the link to see this amazing city, project and landscape.
