Waste Not, Want Not: Shifting Toward a Zero-Waste Lifestyle

  • Cambridge Naturals-Brighton 92 Guest Street Boston United States (map)

What is “zero-waste”? Is reaching zero-waste really possible? What are some practical steps one can take to reduce their waste at home and on-the-go?

In this workshop, Sarah Atkinson, a Cambridge-based environmental professional committed to reducing her waste and carbon footprint, will facilitate a discussion answering these questions and more. Sarah will explore what “going zero-waste” really means, give tips that she’s learned from her own path towards zero-waste over the last 9 months, as well as help troubleshoot all your zero-waste questions around grocery shopping, eating out, recycling/composting, toiletries, and more.

All attendees will receive a $10 gift card to Cambridge Naturals with the price of admission!

Sarah Atkinson received her B.S. in Environmental Science from UC Berkeley and has since consulted for multiple food-service companies in California to improve their sustainability efforts. Sarah has always been mindful of her waste but decided to take the plunge into a full zero-waste lifestyle upon moving to Cambridge last August. Sarah recently helped start a waste-education organization called Zerology, aiming to provide resources and consulting services for individuals and businesses looking to reduce their waste.
