Who we Are
We aim to connect people and increase literacy concerning material consumption and waste with fun, creative and practical actions. We use education, public outreach and scientific research to deliver evidence-based solutions to decrease solid waste and promote a circular economy.
We envision a fun and engaged waste-literate community actively working to protect people, wildlife and the planet through the intersection of science, policy, community engagement and innovation that promote waste reduction.
We are team-oriented, fun, positive, creative, inclusive, respectful, supportive and non-judgmental.
In our community, everyone is treated as an equal and with respect.
How we Work
Data-driven projects to help inform solutions.
Elementary classroom programs and ongoing public education, for all ages.
