Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
— Margaret Mead

The Idea

On Earth Day 2018, good friends, MaryEllen Etienne and Lynn Dusel Quire, entered into a new business adventure together ... Zero Waste Ventures! Our collective mission is to help our fellow Zero Waste journeyers. Over past few months the pair has been working together to figure out how we can have the most impact, and we have some amazing things planned! Our combined skills, network and knowledge, will make us a force to be reckoned with!

While we are working on some extremely fun things coming down the road, we thought we start with two aspects of our venture: Zero Waste Workshops and our Adventures in Zero Waste blog! We will be offering talks, demos and DIY Make & Takes from Dayton, Ohio to Louisville, Kentucky and beyond; and we will be providing tips, product reviews and other resources through our blog. 

We hope you enjoy taking this zero waste journey with us!
