Your Gift at Work

We consider every dollar donated to Just Zero, whether from individual donors or foundations, a gift. Your support is an investment in a strong, healthy, sustainable, future. That’s why you can expect full transparency from us – because we’re committed to doing our best by your gift.

Just Zero is a non-profit, 501(C)3 corporation, meaning your gift to us is 100% tax deductible.

Investing in Our Staff

Just Zero is a cutting edge, virtual organization, meaning we can keep our operating expenses very low. Instead of paying rent for a brick-and-mortar office, we use most of our funds to pay the salaries and benefits of our staff. We don’t pay to keep the heat on in an office, we pay our staff to keep the heat on polluters!

Investing in Environmental Justice

Black and brown communities, low-income communities, and communities of limited English-speaking proficiency have been – and continue to be – disproportionately impacted by pollution, climate change, and the waste crisis. These environmental injustices exist because of racism, classism, white supremacy, and other discriminatory barriers.

We are committed to working under the leadership of environmental justice communities. We believe the folks who are directly impacted by environmental injustices are the ones who know the best solutions for their communities. Your gift means supporting communities in their effort to shut down nearby toxic waste facilities or to stop new ones from being built. All communities deserve a healthy environment, and we will work alongside them to make this a reality.

Investing in Innovative Solutions

By donating to Just Zero, you can rest assured that your gift will be leveraged as efficiently as possible to make real, systemic change. We have four program areas where we strive to shut down outdated waste systems, take on corporate polluters and their lobbyists, and advance community-centered Zero Waste solutions that protect public health, our climate, and the environment.

End Burning NowOpposing dangerous, inequitable facilities that burn waste.
Stop Burying TrashDisrupting outdated, risky landfills.
Keep Compost CleanFighting climate damage by putting food scraps to good use and keeping toxics out of our soil.

We can’t do this without you! Your financial support helps us cultivate and implement innovative Zero Waste solutions across the country.
