Zero Waste Yukon is a loose-knit collaborative effort dedicated to helping Yukon communities reach Zero Waste. We provide education about waste reduction as well as tools and strategies for change.
We work to inspire change through advocacy, events, and support of Zero Waste initiatives in the Yukon Territory.
What is Zero Waste?
Zero Waste is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, to guide people in changing their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use.
We accept the peer-reviewed definition of Zero Waste as defined by the Zero Waste International Alliance:
Zero Waste is “the conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse, and recovery of products, packaging, and materials without burning and with no discharges to land, water, or air that threaten the environment or human health.”
