What is Zero Waste?
Zero Waste is a whole system approach aiming for a massive change in how materials flow through society, resulting in little or no waste. It is defined as a 90% diversion rate of landfill-bound material through source reduction, material reuse, recycling, and composting techniques.
How Do I Make My Event Zero Waste?
We are here to help! We will work with you, your venue, and vendors to create a plan for maximum waste diversion! A Zero Waste Event is designed to reduce or even eliminate waste production and limit the use of raw materials; this is achieved through different action areas: Reducing waste at the source, reuse, recovery, recycling, and composting. We see significant reductions in waste produced through thoughtful planning, equipment, clear signage, and on-site management.
We provide the following assistance for comprehensive waste management solutions.
- Vendor Communication
- Zero Waste Stations for your event
- Assistance managing your event
- Post-Event Waste Diversion Reporting
Why Should Your Event Go Zero Waste?
The average event wastes between 15%-20% of the food it produces.
The average participant generates 2.5 pounds of waste per day at a public event.
Zero waste systems prevents pollution and avoid costs associated with landfill disposal. It also reduces carbon emissions by diverting discarded materials from methane-generating landfills and avoiding carbon emissions associated with extracting, processing and transporting raw materials and waste.
