Welcome To Zero Waste Week!

Zero Waste Week blog ambassador programme
Zero Waste Week wouldn't be the huge success it is without the support of some incredible people. Our Blog Ambassador programme brings together enthusiastic bloggers who are committed to change. They share ideas, experiences and tips on a variety of topics related to waste including recycling, reuse ideas, repair and the circular economy. Our Blog Ambassadors are active, diverse and influential. They're pioneers and change makers. Each one is committed to making a difference, stimulating debate on the issues we are facing and sharing solutions to some of the problems surrounding waste and resources.
