Event description
Join us to learn sustainable solutions for everyday living through reducing waste.

About this Event

In the wake of the climate emergency and the consequences our planet faces if we do not take immediate action, eliminating waste is crucial. By reducing our consumption and diverting trash from landfills, humans can ultimately lower their impact on the planet. By following the waste hierarchy (reduce, reuse, recycle, refuse) consumers can implement simple changes and make choices everyday to make their carbon footprint as small as possible.

With this workshop, we will bring together the zero waste community in New York City and provide as many tools as possible to make zero waste an approachable way of life.

Build skills in:

  • Actionable ways to reduce your impact
  • Stats and facts around waste
  • Simple swaps you can make to transition to a more "eco-friendly" way of life. Includes health and beauty, on-the-go, and kitchen, with specific brands we have tried or researched heavily
  • Deep dive into NYC recycling and how to recycle even "non-recyclable" items
  • Food waste in NYC
  • Composting
  • Textile waste and donating goods
  • Zero waste at work

Instructor:

Nicole Grossberg is a full-time freelance content creator and event manager in the zero waste and sustainability space. She works with clients that include NY SunWorks—a nonprofit that builds hydroponic farm labs in the NYC schools as well as CleanChoice Energy and other sustainability focused organizations. She is also the co-founder of Zero Waste NYC Workshop Series, in partnership with the NYC Department of Sanitation. Their mission is to teach and ultimately empower New Yorkers to go zero waste.

Prior to freelancing, Nicole worked at various advertising with clients such as The Gap, Weight Watchers, Kenneth Cole, and Alaska Airlines. Ultimately, she decided to leave her advertising career behind to pursue her passion for fighting climate change. She devoted herself to becoming as close to zero waste as possible in 2017 and hasn't looked back since.
