(Just a small part of) our wonderful Zero Waste Chicago community.


We're grateful to you for your support. Because we're a small organization, your gift has a big impact. Donations support our ability to offer educational programming and resources at low to no cost to our participants, in turn helping us further our mission of moving Chicago closer to zero waste.


We also accept checks made out to Zero Waste Chicago. Please mail to:

We accept new or used versions of the above items, but please make sure they are clean when donating!
