Achieving Zero Waste plays a significant role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It saves natural resources. Less waste means less plastic pollution and fewer toxic chemicals in our environment.
Why Zero Waste matters
We seek to make systematic changes that have lasting impact. This means we work on laws and programmatic changes rather than focusing on individual behavior change.
Zero Waste Washington drives policy change for a healthy and waste-free world.
We envision a just, equitable, and sustainable future where we all produce, consume, and reuse responsibly.
