Education


Learn more about the basics of zero waste and why it’s important.


Would you like to learn how to reduce plastic use and waste? GreenThinker DC hosts free weekly zero/low waste meet-ups. We also provide speakers for groups who are interested in learning more about the basics of zero/low waste.

Topics include:

  • How do recycling, landfill, and incinerators work?
  • Our children are exposed to toxins through cleaners, cosmetics, electronics, and plastics. What are solutions to cut your exposure to toxins, in particular to plastic?
  • What did life look like before plastic was commercialized? Let’s brainstorm solutions to get back there.
  • What are easy solutions to minimize trash so it does not end up in landfills or incinerators?

To request a speaker for an event please send us a message via the CONTACT page.
