"Zabaleen" is the Arabic term for those visionary and enterprising people whose culture revolves around recycling. The Zabaleen are experts at "transforming one man's garbage into another man's gold" and aspire toward a net zero-waste economy. Applied and supported this could lead to true energy independence, not only by radically reducing our demand for "raw materials" and hard to extract natural resources but by recycling other less obvious phenomena and materials that are now wasted.

Green Gaza Biosphere and Industrial Ecology Movement
Want to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis occurring in Gaza? Support the "Green Gaza Biosphere and Industrial Ecology Movement" for sustainable technology & information transfer. Since material relief supplies can't be safely shipped to the suffering Gazan civilians we ask the world community to send designs & in...structions for self-help in local production of safe clean energy, food, medicine & water recycling.
