About

Our mission is to inspire and empower individuals, schools and organisations to reduce their plastic consumption and waste through everyday choices and actions.

Zero Waste Victoria is focused on providing people with ideas and skills, guiding sustainable habit change, sharing practical resources and connecting with community.

We host information stalls, talks and workshops run by people just like you who envision a world without waste.

For inquiries, to have Zero Waste Victoria host an information stall or run a workshop at your next festival, fete or community event, or to run a school session or lunch time employee session, visit the contact page to get in touch.


Zero Waste Victoria was established in 2017, when zero-waste author, community activist and educator Erin Rhoads wanted to take the war on waste to the streets. Her idea was to provide a fun space where everyday people could see the simple swaps we can all make to reduce the waste Victorian’s send to landfill, how we treat our stuff and reconnecting with the environment. After a call out to the growing Zero Waste Victoria Facebook group seeking help to share the message, the first education stall set up at the National Sustainability Festival 2017. Since then Zero Waste Victoria have been providing education, advice and leading conversations on the growing issues of our waste and recycling system with Victorian councils, businesses and school groups.
