Zero Waste Series

The Zero Waste Series is made possible through a partnership with the District of Squamish. Workshops and events in this series focus on eliminating waste going to the landfill through repairing, re-using, repurposing, reducing and recovering (upcycling). 


Most zero waste workshops are by donation. The donations help us cover material costs and ensure we can keep running these workshops at no or a very low cost for the community in the future. Once we publish the event, we will share the sign-up/ registration link here and on our Squamish CAN facebook page (events).
