THE CULTURE OF ZERO WASTE. Create. Implement. Succeed.

Why Culture?  It's defined as the social behavior and norms found in society, the central concept in anthropology. It encompasses the range of phenomena that are transmitted through social learning in our communities.  We are proud to share that the CRRA community is at the forefront of creating a Zero Waste culture.  Through passion and mission, our colleagues are taking action and implementing plans as well as changing behaviors and practices.  From what we do at home, at school, at the office, at the city, county and state levels, we are effecting change. Because of these efforts, California is succeeding at creating a Culture of Zero Waste.

Presentations cover an array of Zero Waste topics including:  

  • Climate Change

  • Zero Waste Programs

  • Food Rescue

  • California Mandates

  • China's National Sword & State of International Markets

  • Keeping Organics out of Landfills

  • Illegal Dumping, Stormwater and Marine Debris
