ZERO WASTE PROGRAMS

The goal of zero waste is to eliminate trash or anything that could be considered “waste.” By following the 6 Rs (and more!) – refusing, reducing, rethinking, recycling, repairing, reusing, and rot – we can hopefully eliminate the idea of “waste” altogether.

Contact us to learn more about our Zero Waste programs, schedule an event service consultation, or sign up for composting services. You can also check out our calendar to view upcoming Zero Waste events, including the Zero Waste Refill Pop-Up Shops & Delivery schedule.

HOW OUR ZERO WASTE PROGRAMS BENEFIT PARTICIPANTS

I love the Zero Waste Refill Popups and Deliveries. I’ve used them many times. It’s amazing to have this service available in our small mountain community. Even during social distancing, the pop-up shifted to delivery to continue to make the service available. Plastic usage is and will continue to be a huge problem in our world…As such, I think that every consumer has a personal responsibility to try to reduce their plastic usage as much as possible.

Melinda S., ZERO WASTE REFILL POP-UP PARTICIPANT

I love it and it is very easy to use. I didn’t have to create my own composting system, so I love it! Looking forward to compost for my garden.

Delivery Service allows you to get all of your favorite toiletries, cleaning products, and other goodies conveniently, safely, inexpensively, and in a way the minimizes plastic waste. They are organized and easy to work with. I particularly appreciate their contact-less delivery in these times. I would highly recommend their services to anyone in the Evergreen area!
