Zero Waste Week 2021

January 24 – January 30, 2021

Nothing in Nature is Wasted

Join us virtually for a week of Zero Waste education, action items, and solutions!! Zero Waste Gainesville, The Repurpose Project, and Life Unplastic have teamed up to bring you an exciting week of activities that will help you on your journey to Zero Waste.

The theme of this year’s Zero Waste Week is Nothing in Nature is Wasted. In the natural world, resources are continuously used and reused as organisms and nutrients form cycles and improve their ecosystems – thus nothing is waste. Let’s re-learn how to live like the rest of nature!
