R20W logo Sustainability in Action

Our Mission:

To support communities, businesses, and governments in the training, education, and policy work needed to move toward a just and equitable circular economy. In support of our mission, Race to Zero Waste works to build local, national, and global campaigns through a network of community coalition leaders who are delivering the message of the circular economy through a variety of pop-up events, webinars, and workshops.

Race to Zero Waste’s campaign #ZeroWasteMonth happens annually in October

The metaphorical Race to Zero Waste is an ultra marathon. During Zero Waste Month, we turn the race into a SPRINT! 

#ZeroWasteMonth is a global grassroots campaign that coalesces actions and ideas in order to encourage each other to dig a little deeper and make an extra effort. Each post inspires us with ideas and initiatives that we can support or begin to implement in our own communities. It also brings new people into the zero waste movement! Since we know there can be fluctuations in our motivation to keep going or to try out new things, #ZeroMonth is for sharing your efforts and getting excited about collective action!

Throughout #ZeroWasteMonth, we highlight expert voices and advocacy groups that are advancing the zero waste mission. We also discuss equity and accessibility concerns within the zero waste movement. To take the challenge and learn more visit, zerowastemonth.org

How will you go the extra mile for zero waste? #ZeroWasteActionMonth October 2022

Our programs are possible in part thanks to 
generous donors and sponsors like you!

R20W is in public spaces educating folks about Zero Waste!

Thanks to supporters like you and a grant provided by the San Francisco Department of Environment, we are thrilled to host our signature Zero Waste Pop-ups throughout San Francisco. We hope to continue hosting and expanding these important pop-up stations by implementing reuse through our Love Your Neighbor(hood) Program. Check out our example video and event we hosted at Ocean Beach. Look for us at an event near you! 

Contact us if you’d like to learn more about a Zero Waste Pop-up Kit for your next beach cleanup or community event.  

The R20W Newsletter is sent periodically to let our supporters know about program progress, organization updates, special events, upcoming campaigns, and volunteer opportunities. We promise we don’t flood your inbox!
