Zero Waste Resources for Groups/Businesses

Intro to zero waste presentations

Do you have an eco-friendly group interested in reducing their impact on the planet? Is your office looking for ways to be more sustainable? I’d love to help you uncover the beginning steps in an approximately one-hour presentation about how you can reduce your trash.

The presentation is customizable based on your needs, but generally includes:

  • a brief introduction to zero waste principles;
  • 3-5 tangible actions to drastically reduce waste;
  • local-specific resources to help you get started;
  • a Q&A session to address specific questions.

A massive guide on creating a local zero waste group - Workshop 2

Workshops

The fun part of zero waste is discovering the ability to get creative when finding zero waste alternatives to items you used to think of as necessary. Workshops – rather than presentations – are hands-on affairs where you’ll leave with practical knowledge on a specific aspect of the zero waste lifestyle. Workshops last approximately one hour and will include all supplies needed for the activity chosen, if needed.

Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:

  • DIYs: let’s learn how to replace our usual products with low-waste alternatives (deodorant, toothpaste, laundry detergent, wax wraps, lip balm)
  • Trash Audit: through a survey and observation, your business will receive a report on the ways it can reduce waste and the potential savings opportunities. This also includes an optional workshop for employee education.
  • How Do I Bulk?: an interactive guide to buying bulk without fear! Perfect for shops offering bulk options and excited to teach eco-conscious customers.
  • Kombucha 101: the hows and whys of DIY kombucha
  • An Introduction to Composting: how to effectively compost on a budget
Compost consultation

Composting can seem overwhelming. Let me help! I’ve composted everywhere from a 400 sq. ft. studio to an apartment balcony to a large outdoor space.

The composting consultation package includes:

  • a brief questionnaire to assess your needs
  • a 2-3 page report with options and pricing
  • a resource packet sharing the dos and don’ts of composting
  • a 20 minute Skype session to talk through the report and go over any questions
