Living in China can make it difficult to know how to make life choices that are good for the environment. Luckily environmental awareness is stepping up here, and as Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged, at the UN General Assembly in Sept 2020, that he wanted China to achieve “Carbon Neutrality by 2060”, we decided it’s high time we rolled up our sleeves and got involved.

We are excited to launch our Going Zero Waste Awareness Campaign!

Do you know what composting, Zero Waste and the Circular Economy are?

Did you know that the COVID-19 and almost all recent pandemics originate in wildlife, and there is evidence that increasing human pressure on the natural environment may drive these diseases more likely to appear.

Come and join Zero Waste Chengdu in this awareness campaign at Tongzilin Community Center to explore all of these topics in a fun and practical way, and find out why this is probably one of the most impactful things we can do for the planet.

 Why Get Involved? 
   

1

Time is critical; China is the most populated country in the world therefore the repercussion of individual actions can easily produce a change on a big scale.

2

 Reducing the waste that goes to landfills/incineration, and the ocean, is a must for China to realize the “2017 Paris Agreement on Climate Change”.

Because of our love for Mother Nature! When you care about something you want to understand it and look after it.
