What makes an event Zero waste?
Zero Waste is an approach to resource management that conserves, repurposes and recycles what otherwise would be buried in a landfill, into valuable assets that contribute to environmental, economic and social well-being.
We consider a Zero Waste event, any event where 90% or more of all material generated at an event is reused, recycled or composted.
