GAIA - the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives
United to influence climate policy, build a world free from plastic, and implement zero waste solutions.
GAIA is one of the leading organizations working to end waste pollution and create a just and toxic-free world. Since its inception in the year 2000, the organization has grown to include hundreds of members in over 90 countries. GAIA functions as a horizontal structure supporting local environmental justice efforts—whether those of wastepickers or policymakers—around the world.
Those who do the most for others often have the least amount of time for themselves. With over twenty years of work behind them and a wealth of knowledge and resources, GAIA's content refresh for their website required a deep dive into the nuances of equitable movement building, zero waste systems and philosophy, climate justice, plastic policy, and the impact of incineration and burn technologies.
