Race to Zero Waste will soon be posting the date and registration for our annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival fundraiser! We’re excited to feature a hybrid model that will include some in-person activities as well as the virtual live screening. 

Race to Zero Waste would like to say THANK YOU to all our volunteers, sponsors, donors, and attendees for making our first Wild & Scenic Film Fest a success in 2020! We had over 75 attendees, some raffle winners, and many new subscribers. With over $3,000 raised, the money has been used to expand our Zero Waste Station Program in San Francisco and feature reuse bins at our existing stations. 


Zero Waste Action Month – October 2021 

During Zero Waste Action Month, we turn the Race to Zero Waste into a SPRINT! 

We invite you to participate by making an extra effort toward zero waste! Learn about and try something new and share on social media! We will also be highlighting expert voices and advocacy groups that are advancing the zero waste mission, so be sure to follow along! 

Share your actions using hashtags #ZeroWasteActionMonth and #SprinttoZeroWaste. Be sure to tag us, too, @RacetoZeroWaste! You can share anything related to zero waste action (see our blog posts for ideas!), or you can follow our weekly themes. The first week is all about textiles! You can show off your favorite second-hand buy, something you made or repaired, a cool way to recycle or upcycle clothes, or any other idea you can come up with!

Zero Waste Action Month Oct 2021. Join the SPRINT by sharing your actions on social media #ZeroWasteActionMonth and @racetozerowaste. Weekly themes include Textiles, Durables, Compost, and Zero Waste Policies. #SprinttoZeroWaste!
