What is Zero Waste

The simple answer: We aim to send nothing to a landfill.


We reduce what we need, reuse as much as we can, send little to be recycled, and compost what we cannot. 

The less simple answer: It’s really about redefining the system. We currently live in a linear economy where we take resources from the earth and then dump them in a giant hole in the ground.


The goal of zero waste is to move to a circular economy where we write trash out of existence.


The circular economy mimics nature in that there is no trash in nature.

Instead of discarding resources, we create a system where all resources can be resumed fully back into the system.
