Be a Zero Waste ambassador: Become an Eco-Leader!
Does this describe you?
Do you care about climate change, species extinction, social justice, resource depletion, energy and water conservation, healthy soils and food, clean air and water, and healthy living…?
We need you to be an Eco-Leader!
It’s simple and takes very little time. We just need you to be you: someone who cares.
We train you, we keep you informed, you keep US informed, and you help change the world right where you work, play, and live.
Why is this role so important?
Zero Waste—reducing waste, reusing, redesigning products, composting and recycling—is the fastest, easiest, most cost-effective way a community can reduce its negative impacts on our climate. Zero Waste also helps conserve our dwindling resources for a more peaceful and equitable use of resources globally. It creates local green jobs, builds a local green economy, and creates systems that help our growing human populations adapt to more people living on fewer resources so that we can live more sustainably on this one planet for generations to come.
Zero Waste is a LOT more important than just keeping materials out of our landfills… It’s critical to our survival and to the survival of the untold numbers of other species on this planet. The faster we move forward with Zero Waste solutions, the faster we can solve some of the greatest issues of our time.
So how do we move this solution forward as quickly as possible?
YOU are the key.
Imagine a community where on every block, at every business, at every place of worship, every community club, every school, every multi-family dwelling – everywhere – we had an engaged person [an Eco-Leader!] who was up to speed on all things Zero Waste in our community, and shared that information with their networks. By being in-the-know and being willing to share that knowledge with the people around them, an Eco-Leader moves us to have an informed and engaged community that actively works towards implementing Zero Waste as a climate solution.
