I believe strongly that our sense of place helps establish who we are and how we respond to our environment. This is why zero waste advocacy, and specifically justice-focused zero waste advocacy, is so essential to building a community of environmental stewards. Focusing on waste reduction and scientifically-sound and community-centered approaches to managing materials must be our priority as we tackle the waste crisis in the US.
At Just Zero, I apply a similar lens to our operations – I focus on streamlining processes, implementing policies, and ensuring our practices are as just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive as possible. Just Zero is more than an organization; it is an organism that grows and flexes to stay at the front edge of our work and best practices for organization management.
