Kamikatsu in Japan is a small town that is about 40 kilometers from Tokushima city. It is fast-moving towards becoming the country's first zero-waste municipality.

The city encourages residents to recycle and reuse their waste, not to purchase or use products that might end up as waste, and requested manufacturers to produce products that could easily and safely be disposed of to stop waste generation at its origin.
