Zero Waste Event Kit

Zero Waste is a culture shift -- establishing innovative ways to reduce waste sent to the landfill through reuse, recycling, compost, and more. We offer event recycling bins, as well as reusable plates, wares, cups, napkins, and more for you to borrow for any event, in order to reduce the need for disposables and send less stuff to the landfill.
