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!
