Reinhold Ziegler founded Synergy International, Inc. as a team of sustainability-minded designers, architects and engineers that provide solutions to various ecological problems we are facing around the world. The company specializes in separating nutrients from the waste stream — things that are constantly being carelessly tossed into the garbage heap — and recycling and reusing them as a means of building localized solutions and economies everywhere. “There is no such thing as waste. We have to start thinking in terms of recovery in terms of throwing things away — there is no ‘away.'”
