Simple and imperfect zero waste | Litterless

Hi, I'm Celia.

I’m an environmental writer, organizer, and speaker sharing resources and building community around the topic of zero waste. 

-Writing: Here on Litterless, I write about striving for zero waste both imperfectly and joyfully, as a way to work toward a more sustainable future. In addition to blog posts, the "Where to Shop" and "Where to Compost" guides can help you find local zero waste resources in your community.

-Organizing: I live in Madison, Wisconsin, where I host free community meet-ups, as well as a local zero waste Facebook group. When I lived in Chicago, I co-founded Zero Waste Chicago, an environmental not-for-profit offering resources and education to move Chicago to zero waste.

-Speaking: I speak and give workshops on the topics of zero waste, composting, and environmental organizing. Please contact me to inquire more.

If you're new to the idea of zero waste and want to learn more, start here. Here’s the long and short of it: you don't have to be perfect, you just have to begin.

All are welcome in this space, and I'm so glad you're here.
