Hi! Thanks for checking out our site and perhaps taking the initiative to reduce your own waste! The Zero Approach is made up of 2 couples, Jeremiah and Amie have been at this for almost 4 years and Sam and Alexis have just begun their zero waste journey. We are coming together to share all of our newcomer and experienced knowledge, with some highlights on how to do it specifically in Banff, Alberta.
None of us are originally from the Bow valley, but we all moved here for a love of the mountains. Banff being an ever growing tourist destination, reaching over 4 million visitors a year, it is now becoming more and more crucial that we actively take part in reducing our footprint. Every time we see a granola bar wrapper on the trail or a plastic water bottle in a lake we are reminded that our actions directly impact this iconic Canadian landscape.
Our hope is that this page will demonstrate how accessible a zero waste lifestyle can be for everyone. It's easier than you think!
