Sign up to receive campaign news and updates.
How It Works
In our first portion of the campaign which kicks off January 1st, we hope to empower individuals across the globe to be part of the solution to plastic pollution. We will share resources and ideas to reduce single-use plastic waste, share calls to action and policy platforms that are driving forward infrastructure development around plastics and packaging, and tell stories of the brands who are actively engaged in reducing their plastic footprint.
Zero waste champions will be able to interact with the campaign through the sharing of social and blog posts, webinars, volunteer events, calls to action, policy engagements, and more. Engage with your favorite brands during the month of January, and share your zero waste living tips using the hashtag #1SteptoZeroWaste
