Zero waste to transform the world!

 We are overjoyed with the United Nations’ decision to proclaim March 30th as International Day of Zero Waste. This recognition of the importance of zero waste reflects decades of environmental activism, led by organizations around the world like ours, working side by side with the communities most impacted by environmental and social injustices caused by a global system of overproduction and consumption of natural resources.

The public declaration on the first annual celebration of this date is signed by over 200 grassroots communities and organizations in almost 60 countries across the map.

As organizations at the forefront of zero waste principles and strategies, we want to emphasize that any program that uses the term,”zero waste” must keep the focus first and foremost on reducing and preventing waste.
