Zero Waste Classes

Are you worried about plastic pollution clogging up our world? Wondering if recycling really helps, or what more we can even do? The best place to start reducing waste is at home–your greatest sphere of influence–and take it one room at a time. And zero waste classes can help!

Zero waste classes discuss how to:

1.) Reduce what we contribute to landfill
2.) Recycle less but better
3.) Compost more (even without a bin!) and
4.) Narrow your focus, with specific resources and positive support.

Zero waste is a target to aim for that helps you assess your individual situation, not a rigid ideal that should scare people away from making change–no matter how big or small. It all counts.

In addition to making positive change for the planet, there are many PERSONAL benefits to “going zero waste,” from health improvements to savings in time and money.

Current zero-waste classes are offered in person but will be available online sometime in 2020! For updates and zero waste tips, follow me here or on Instagram @vintagegreenreview.
