Come and show your favorite zero waste activity to the group!
We will go round the group and each person will share something they do that is zero waste. We'll each make a commitment to a new eco-friendly or zero waste actions that we will take on for the next month. If you want to write down your pledge for your new zero waste actions, we can take a photograph of your beautiful self and add it to the meetup page so your pledge can inspire even more people!
We'll have zero waste snacks available.
This style of meetup is based on a few behavioral psychology principles: The first being that people learn their behaviors from other people around them in a process called social diffusion. This is why it's so important for us to get together! The second is that making a commitment or pledge dramatically increases our tenacity in adopting new behaviors. The third principle is that making our pledges public, such as taking a photograph with our pledge written down on paper, dramatically enhances our commitment to the action. This group will help provide positive encouragement to help each of us to keep up the zero waste momentum and help spread these important behaviors through to our friends, families and co-workers.
Over time, I hope people can keep taking on more advanced zero waste steps and adopting community advocacy such as changing a law, or helping a whole corporation, department or school go zero waste.
Really excited to meet everyone!
