Zero Waste Fair

5th annual Zero Waste Fair

August 15, 2020 | Virtual Event

The fifth annual Zero Waste Fair hosted by I Love A Clean San Diego and the City of Encinitas will help create a roadmap for people interested in living a waste-free lifestyle. Free online registration is open now for the virtual event, set to take place from 9am-1pm. Registration is required to attend the day’s live interactive webinar and is open to anyone in or outside Encinitas.

“No matter where you live in San Diego County or beyond, everyone is welcome to join us for this unique event that will provide simple and actionable ways to start cutting wasteful habits from your life,” says I Love A Clean San Diego’s Education Manager Emily Nelson. “We want everyone to benefit from more time, more money, and less waste through low-waste living.”

This year, the Zero Waste Fair presents a variety of informative and fun presentations, demonstrations, and Q&A sessions. Guest experts will highlight low-waste living resources, composting tips, recycling help, current environmental justice topics, and more. Guests will also have the opportunity to try eco-friendly crafting, set personal zero waste goals, and win sustainable prizes.

“The term zero waste can seem like an impossible mark to achieve, but it is an aspirational goal that will lead us to effectively protect our planet, eliminate harmful consumer products like single-use plastics, and conserve natural resources,” says Nelson. “We don’t claim to be perfect at this, but every little bit helps. Everybody has the power to do something.”

Donations will support I Love A Clean San Diego’s environmental education programs for K-12 students throughout San Diego County. Participants must register to attend at CleanSD.org.

Highlighted topics include:

• Living zero waste with the EcoGoddess
• Guided tour of a refill store
• Climate action planning at the city of Encinitas
• Composting at home
• Recycling right
• Crafting with repurposed materials to send a message
