The Zero Waste Network is a group of environmental professionals dedicated to finding money-saving options for conserving our natural resources. We are a collaborative project of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the University of Texas, and regional environmental agencies. Together we work to identify pollution prevention options for large and small businesses as well as consumers.

Our Mission
We are dedicated to protecting the environment by helping companies become more efficient. We supply tools to reduce production costs by lowering environmental impact. It's a win-win, non-regulatory approach that benefits everyone.

Our Strategy
As a regional center we work to help innovative state/local pollution prevention programs share their strategies and success. We also provide tools that environmental specialists can use to promote zero waste. We also provide assistance directly to facilities by showing them how they can save money by eliminating waste.
