What we're about
Denver Recycles and Composts 22% of its waste... out of 100%! We can do better! Help us achieve Denver's 2020 Sustainability Goal of recycling and composting 34% or more!
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.
