THERE’S NO SUCH PLACE AS ‘AWAY’
What happens when you throw something away? Away isn’t some magical place: it’s landfill, an incinerator, the bottom of the ocean, litter or the stomach of an animal. It’s always somewhere else . . .
Be part of the solution and join millions of people around the world by reducing waste through reuse, recycling and repurposing material for a longer life.
WHAT IS ZERO WASTE WEEK?
Zero Waste Week is a grassroots campaign raising awareness of the environmental impact of waste and empowering participants to reduce waste. Launched in 2008 by Rachelle Strauss, the campaign is conducted almost exclusively online via this website, e-newsletters and social media.
Whilst Zero Waste Week formally runs for one week in September (3rd to the 7th), regular newsletters and fresh blog content is sent out throughout the year. Our friendly online community share practical experiences and suggestions about waste avoidance via social media to keep the discussion and learning process going.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
ZERO WASTE WEEK BLOG AMBASSADOR PROGRAMME
Zero Waste Week wouldn’t be the huge success it is without the support of some incredible people. Our Blog Ambassador programme brings together enthusiastic bloggers who are committed to change. They share ideas, experiences and tips on a variety of topics related to waste including recycling, reuse ideas, repair and the circular economy. Our Blog Ambassadors are active, diverse and influential. They’re pioneers and change makers. Each one is committed to making a difference, stimulating debate on the issues we are facing and sharing solutions to some of the problems surrounding waste and resources. We at Green Family Guide are honoured and thrilled that our own Jacqueline Baldwin is an ambassador for Zero Waste Week 2018.
