NEARLY ZERO Project

Youth-led Action. Zero Waste. Our Future

ECE-5th grade 

Imagine an entire school producing almost no waste. 

Imagine designing a system to recapture waste as a resource.

Imagine youth creating the change.

Our Nearly Zero Project is a toolkit to get whole schools walking on the path to changing the culture of waste in their buildings and believing in their students to lead it. 

 

We are the change we have been waiting for.
