What is Zero Waste?
Zero-waste is a lifestyle goal where people aim to reduce their trash output. This means we all need to avoid any kind of single-use packaging, bags, wrappers, and utensils, to reduce garbage from going into landfill and oceans. The way to do it is to cut back on what we need, reuse if possible, reduce the amount we send to recycling, and compost when we can. While this may seem like an impossible mission in today's throw away culture, everyday people from around the world are proving that it can be done by taking one step at a time. The zero-waste advocates are inspiring the world that we all have the ability to make a difference in protecting our planet.

This is the time to take the challenge, make the change, educate, and inspire others to reduce their reliance on single-use plastics from their daily lives by using reusables and earth friendly products.
"We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly." - Anne Marie Bonneau
