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. This means designing and managing products and processes to reduce the volume and toxicity of waste materials, conserve and recover all resources, and not burn or bury them.

CSUN cannot achieve zero waste without the support and participation of campus users. Each of us has dozens of opportunities to reduce our own waste on a daily basis, and we’re calling on the campus community to step up and help us cut back. Getting to Zero Waste means buying fewer items that will become trash, taking advantage of reusable products, recycling what we can, and re-thinking processes to reduce their resource consumption. 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.
