GAIA: Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives (Northern Office)
GAIA Mission Statement: Adopted December 2000 in Johannesburg, South Africa
GAIA is a worldwide alliance of non-profit organizations and individuals who recognize that our planet's finite resources, fragile biosphere and the health of people and other living beings are endangered by polluting and inefficient production practices and health-threatening disposal methods.
We oppose incinerators, landfills, and other end-of-pipe interventions.
Our ultimate vision is a just, toxic-free world without incineration. Our goal is the implementation of clean production, and the creation of a closed-loop, materials-efficient economy where all products are reused, repaired or recycled back into the marketplace or nature.
