What does it mean to be ‘Zero Waste’?

Think of ‘Zero Waste’ as a goal to always being ‘Waste Conscious’. Becoming aware of the trash that we create, combined with the conscious effort to reduce it, is an empowering step to the reduction of overall waste in our communities. By moving ‘Toward Zero Waste’ together, we can decrease landfill space, our carbon footprint on the Earth, and have a positive effect on the environment and our future.
