Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternative

GAIA is a worldwide alliance of more than 800 mostly grassroots groups in over 90 countries whose ultimate vision is a just, toxic-free world without incineration. GAIA members use creative, bottom-up strategies to protect the climate and community health, and to advance environmental justice.

We work both against incinerators and for safe, sustainable and just alternatives. Our name reflects this dual purpose:

  • The Global Anti-Incinerator Alliance: Mobilizing grassroots action against the spread of incinerators and other polluting, end-of-pipe waste technologies.
  • The Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives: Building the movement for environmental justice, local green economies, and creative zero waste solutions.
