Zerology is a community.

Zero Waste 101 Event in Tucson, Arizona

Zero Waste 101 Event in Tucson, Arizona

At Zerology, we are working to bring people together across the spectrum of waste-minded individuals – from the casual reusable-mug carrier, to the policy maker, to the “cradle-to-cradle” minded entrepreneur, to the zero-waste guru, to the established business owner looking to make practical changes. In order to change the way our society understands waste, we must collaborate and empower one another in our personal lifestyle changes and work together towards greater community engagement.

Zerology is a waste education collaborative that makes low-waste living fun, easy and accessible.

We want to act as your hub for all things zero-waste and we are pursuing ways to make low-waste living an easier transition for those that want to start reducing their waste. Everyone’s journey towards zero is different and personal, and we value everyone’s path. At Zerology, it’s the process that counts (not how small of a jar you can fit your year’s waste in). We know from experience how hard it can be to start reducing your waste, especially when the whole system surrounding you makes it so hard to avoid. We are here for you!

We are currently based in Tucscon, AZ and Boston, MA where we have already begun nourishing budding zero-wasters and building communities of low-waste living leaders. As we grow, so will our community – are you ready to start your journey?
