ZERO WASTE
HOW BREASTFEEDING SAVES THE
ENVIRONMENT
Velvet Escario-Roxas


Zero waste does not occur
spontaneously in today’s modern
world.
Humans are the only inhabitants on
earth that produces abundant waste
that cannot be reused or assimilated
back into the natural environment.


Zero Waste is a strategy or design
principle as we use more natural
resources thus increasing our toxic
and destructive leftovers.
We can do this by minimizing waste,
maximizing recycling, reducing our
consumption and making sure that
products are made to be reused,
repaired or recycled back into
nature or the marketplace.
BREASTFEEDING
Nothing is wasted or becomes unwanted at
every stage.
BREASTFEEDING = ZERO carbon footprint
 Carbon footprint is amount of carbon
(usually in ton) being emitted by an
activity, individual, community,
organization or business.
 Breastfeeding has no waste product
and leaves no carbon footprint.
 The only extra but very minimal
carbon emissions produced through
breastfeeding are in the production of
the few extra calories that a
breastfeeding woman requires in her
food intake.
NO PRECIOUS ENERGY IS WASTED

extraction

BREASTFEEDING
BREASTFEEDING = ZERO water footprint
Breastfeeding leaves zero
water footprint.
For the first six months of an
exclusively breastfed baby,
no water is needed.
Water footprint is the volume
of fresh water used for the
goods and services produced
by a business or used by an
individual or a community.
The more infant formula that gets made, transported
and consumed, the more water gets used.
Water footprint refer to water used: in growing and
raising cows, processing of infant formula, and
especially the water pollution caused.
 Growing an industry of cows
contaminates water.
 Their excrements and
fertilizers used to grow
wheat/grass/corn to feed
them pollute rivers, lakes and
groundwaters, affecting all
ecosystems dependent upon
those bodies of water.
BREASTMILK SAVES TREES, FIELDS
AND FORESTS

Breastmilk comes in
one of the most
extraordinary
packaging in the
world.
1 Million Babies bottlefed for a year
20,000 Garbage Trucks per year
on infant formula cans alone
BREASTMILK SAVES TREES, FIELDS
AND FORESTS


No need to clear land and
forests if babies are
breastfed.
Producing infant formula
causes inefficient use of land,
cutting of trees, clearing of
forests and soil erosion.
In Mexico:
12.5 square meters of rain forest
1 kilo of infant formula
BREASTFEEDING
Demand and supply
cycle
What the baby needs,
the mom’s breast can
supply.
The ingredients in
breastmilk is the exact
perfect nutrition that
the baby needs.
Easily absorbed by
the body.


Moms who exclusively breastfeed their babies and
continues to do so experiences delayed menstruation
for an average of 14 months.
Breastfeeding contributes to child spacing.
Infant milk
companies
have polluted
our land, air
and water all
in the name of
profit.
BREASTFEEDING
Most overlooked means of contributing to
the health of the planet
