What can prevent waste, save money, AND help build connections with our neighbors? Community sharing projects!

Zero Waste is working on three community projects: Tacoma Tool library, Federal Way Tool Library, and Tacoma Event Supplies Network.

We are all very familiar with book lending libraries (aka public libraries). What if we had libraries that loaned things besides books? What if we had lending libraries that share things like tools, kid’s toys, outdoor gear, durable party supplies, or sporting goods? We could all have more access to things without everyone buying them individually. And with less stuff bought, that’s less stuff that will ultimately end up in the landfill. Waste prevention meets community connection!

This concept of community sharing has inspired Zero Waste Washington to work on neighborhood sharing projects in south King County and Tacoma. We have two main goals with this project: 1) connect with people in south King County to support their leadership on zero waste and 2) create a lending library of things that people want to be able to borrow!

We need a community effort for this community project! Do you want to get involved in the community sharing project? If you want to help out, contact Eva at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or (206) 441-1790.
