Plan Zero Waste Events

zero waste events

I pledge to plan zero waste events that rely on washing and reusing everything and avoiding anything that’s single use or made from plastic.

BYO Takeout Container

I pledge to go zero waste takeout by bringing my own reusable container and will inform the restaurant when I place my order so they can accommodate my request.

Reuse Aluminum Foil

I pledge to reuse aluminum foil by washing it – soaking if necessary to soften baked-on food – and drip drying it, then folding or rolling it to be stored until next time.

No Single-Use Sweeper Pads

I will not buy or use single-use, disposable sweeper pads – wet or dry – since they create unnecessary household waste. I will buy and use reusable, washable sweeper pads instead to go zero waste.

No Plastic Food Wrap

I will not buy plastic food wrap since it’s not recyclable and is made from petroleum, which can leach toxins into our food and the environment. Instead I will buy washable, reusable beeswax food wrap to go zero waste.

Be a Conscious Consumer

I pledge to buy used, swap, borrow and become a thrifter before buying anything new. I will not buy cheaply made items that don’t last.
