Zero Waste

Take the Zero Waste Challenge

Help Us Reach Our Goal of Zero Waste

What is Zero Waste?

Zero Waste is the practice of changing systems, lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use. Zero Waste means designing and managing products and processes to systematically avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, conserve and recover all resources, and not burn or bury them.

CSUN’s Zero Waste Plan calls for us to eliminate 95% of all of our landfill-bound campus waste. We’re calling on the campus community to step up and help us cut back. Getting to Zero Waste means using less, re-using more, recycling what we can, and re-thinking the way we do almost everything to make sure we’re as sustainable as possible. It’s a tough job, but we can do it if we all work together. Use the form below to take the Zero Waste Challenge.
