What Is Zero Waste?

According to the Zero Waste International Alliance, Zero Waste is the “conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse and recovery of all products, packaging, and materials, without burning them, and without discharges to land, water or air that threaten the environment or human health.”

Start Small

Striving towards zero waste means that you reduce consumption of unnecessary goods, reuse as much as possible, and as a last resort, recycle whatever you can.
