Zero Waste Fair

6th Annual Zero Waste Fair

I Love A Clean San Diego County and the City of Encinitas invite San Diego County residents to celebrate and learn about all things zero waste! Whether you are curious about what exactly zero waste means, or are actively working towards a low waste lifestyle, this unique event touches on a variety of topics and issues related to sustainability.

Although this year will be presented in a virtual format, special guests will join I Love A Clean San Diego and expand on helpful information delivered in many of our traditional workshops and webinars. We will dig deeper into common topics, explore new themes, and bring in local voices to further develop the discussion. Throughout the morning and into the afternoon, I Love A Clean San Diego’s Environmental Educators will guide attendees through half hour and quarter hour live segments. Join us for the 6th Annual Zero Waste Fair on Saturday, June 12th, from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM for a series of mini-segments covering everything from sustainable fashion to current environmental justice concerns.

No matter where you are on your sustainability journey, log on for the topics that inspire you. There is no need to commit to the full four-hour event. You are welcome to hop on and off at any time.
