Many consumers are looking for ways to reduce their environmental impact and are going "zero waste" or minimizing the amount of waste they produce. This article will give you some great zero waste gift ideas that could be a perfect way to celebrate someone's birthday!
What is Zero Waste?
Zero Waste is when you do not throw anything away but instead reuse, recycle, compost, or repurpose your materials.
