• Zero waste is not about producing zero waste. It’s about living consciously as stewards of the Earth and making decisions every day to live with the planet in mind.
  • We strive to eliminate and/or reduce single-use items and instead opt for items that are ethically sourced, responsibly made, naturally derived, and built to last.

  • We believe in a better Earth. Come and share, teach, and learn with us as we support one another on our journey to living more sustainably.

Environmental Benefits

  • Reduces our carbon footprint by decreasing greenhouse gas emissions involved in creating new single-use products and consumer goods.
  • Reduces our garbage output, which minimizes the strain on landfill capacity and prevents the release of harmful greenhouse gases, like methane
  • Reduces pollution, especially plastic, that contaminates terrestrial and marine environments and harms wildlife.
  • Reduces the demand for intensive resource extraction which conserves natural resources and protects ecosystems.

Social Benefits

  • Weakens our connection to “stuff” and material goods that are forced upon us in a consumer-drive, capitalist society, making room for what matters in our lives.
  • Encourages a circular economy where things are built to last, shared, and repurposed. 
  • Transitions our communities to those based on connecting and sharing resources, tools, and knowledge.

Financial Benefits

  • Creates green jobs in the local economy
  • Saves you money by buying less cheap “throw-away” items and investing in durable, pieces built to last (and most often, these alternatives are free or cost less than than the single-use option!)
  • Saves you money by encouraging you to use what you have and take better care of things you own so they last longer
