About The 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 (refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, rot) consumers can implement simple changes and make choices every day to make their carbon footprint as small as possible. Join The Camarderie NYC for a conversation with Zero Waster NYC creator Nicole Grossberg, as we provide an array of tools to make zero waste an approachable way of life.
Build skills in:
- Actionable ways to reduce your impact
- 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 recycling and how to recycle even “non-recyclable” items
- Food waste
- Textile waste and donating goods
- Zero waste at work
After seven years in the advertising industry, Nicole Grossberg is now a full-time Freelance Content Creator, Sustainability Advocate, and Zero Waste Practitioner. She has worked with corporations, startups, nonprofits, and social enterprises and interviewed and conversed with over 100 sustainability experts from CEOs, to CSR reps, to zero waste film producers, climate change advocates lobbying for policy change, and local community members. Nicole started her personal zero waste journey in 2017, and in August of 2019, she decided to host a workshop to share her experiences with a wider audience. The event sold out, with over 40 attendees squeezing into a small conference room at Civic Hall in NYC. The following month, Sanitation Foundation became an official partner of the workshop series. Today, Nicole creates and facilitates the monthly workshops they host together.
Open to all women, everywhere.
