Ambassadors

With the help of the Ambassadors who are active members and volunteers, the association helps people learn about the zero waste lifestyle in the different regions of Switzerland. The Ambassador raises awareness, inspires people and helps them to change their habits and to reduce waste in general. Connecting interested parties, sharing ideas and best practices for a zero waste society, and supporting ZeroWaste Switzerland projects at regional level are also a key part of their priorities.
