Our VISION is an island community where waste no longer exists.

Our MISSION is to provide zero waste education, resources, and programs to build an ethical & responsible consumer culture.

ZWO is building a healthier future, with a balanced consumer culture and less waste, through a system of proactive interventions in our current production methods, purchasing practices and waste management systems. We work in the following ways:

  • Provide education & outreach

  • Design and pilot zero waste projects that can be scaled appropriately

  • Conduct waste audits to inform targeted waste reduction methods to businesses and office spaces

  • Create and support dynamic policy at the state and county level

We have a responsibility to look after our planet. It is our only home.
