What does “Zero Waste”
“Zero Waste: The conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse, and recovery of products, packaging, and materials without burning and with no discharges to land, water, or air that threaten the environment or human health.”
– Zero Waste International Alliance
Through our Zero Waste focus we aim to join the global Zero Waste movement led by citizens, governments, thought leaders and businesses that are determined to eliminate the concept of waste by building a sustainable world with better products, impactful jobs and a healthier planet.
We aim to connect local communities that are striving on their own and bring them together to achieve bigger, speedier and cost-effective transition to zero waste through the power of aggregation.
