Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives (GAIA)
GAIA is a worldwide alliance of more than 800 grassroots groups, non-governmental organizations, and individuals in over 90 countries whose ultimate vision is a just, toxic-free world without incineration. We work both against incinerators and for safe, sustainable, and just alternatives. We recognize that our planet's finite resources, fragile biosphere and the health of people and other living beings are endangered by polluting, inefficient production practices, and health-threatening disposal methods. Because of this we oppose incinerators, landfills, and other end-of-pipe interventions. Our goal is 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.
