Sustainable Solutions Fair



What is Zero Waste?

The Environmental Protection Agency defines zero waste as the conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse, and recovery of products. It is a conscious way of living that considers the entire life cycle of products, and it encourages a circular economy. We can all take steps with both individual and community actions to reach a low to zero waste San Diego!


About the Sustainable Solutions Fair

I Love A Clean San Diego, in partnership with the City of Encinitas, has hosted the Sustainable Solutions Fair since its inception in 2015. The event brings together residents, businesses and non-profits from every corner of San Diego County. Attend the hosted panel of speakers, walk through the booths and vendors and participate in hands-on low-waste activities!
