Zero Waste Week 2021
Nothing in Nature is Wasted
Zero Waste Week 2021, presented by Zero Waste Gainesville, The Repurpose Project, and Life Unplastic, is January 24 through January 30 and will be a week of education, action items, and solutions pertaining to different aspects of Zero Waste to not only educate our community about Zero Waste principles, but also get us on a collective path towards achieving those goals.
The theme of this year’s Zero Waste Week is Nothing in Nature is Wasted. In the natural world, resources are continuously used and reused as organisms and nutrients form cycles and improve their ecosystems – thus nothing is waste.
Day 1 – January 24th – We appreciate and acknowledge that everything we use and eat are resources that come from the earth and in nature nothing is wasted
Day 2 – January 25th – Waste Audit – We encourage everyone to conduct a waste audit –
Day 3 – January 26th – Reduce Wasted Food & Commit to Compost

Day 5 – January 28th – Reduce – commit to reducing landfill trash
Day 6 – January 29th – Reuse – commit to buying used and using reusables
