    What Our Students Say

    “The ZWF course is something I think everyone should take.  It not only opened my eyes and my mind to the global waste crisis, it has inspired me to want to take action to address the issue. I truly believe this course should be offered to all high school students so we can engage today’s youth in being part of the solutions we need to move ahead.”

    Be the Change

    “I thoroughly enjoyed the Zero Waste Fundamentals course. It gave me a broader understanding of the environmental and social issues relating to the current linear system as well as the benefits of adopting a systems thinking mindset. I appreciated the flexibility of being able to watch the recordings as opposed to having to attend live sessions. The additional resources were also very helpful. I recommend this course to anyone who is interested in exploring ways to  positively contribute to their community.”
