Because people deserve Zero Waste solutions with zero climate-damaging emissions and zero toxic exposures.

Making a Difference with Zero Waste Laws and Policies

Founded in 2022, Just Zero grew from a strong desire to design and implement sensible waste policies that provide protections for all communities across the nation. Why? Because our country’s waste management practices are outdated and unsustainable – not to mention toxic. Here at Just Zero, we feel people and the planet deserve better. And we’re using every tool available to us to fight for what’s right.
