At Zero Waste Concordia, our mission is to divert and reduce as much waste on campus away from landfill, and instead reduce, reuse, recycle and rot.
Since the university is closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have now adapted our efforts to focus on the waste created at the homes of our community, so that we can achieve our mission when the university reopens.
We encourage everyone to try out a home waste audit and share your results with our online community!
