The Zero Waste Warriors was a program that Better World Betty ran from 2014 – 2015 and consisted of a group of passionate and informed volunteers dedicated to advancing the goals of the Charlottesville Albemarle Recycling Taskforce (CART). They were CART’s boots-on-the-ground ambassadors who used their local connections with residents, students, and business owners to clear up the recycling confusion that has wrought Albemarle in recent years and forge a more progressive path for our community.

The Zero Waste Warriors hoped to 1- Establish a strong and informed group of volunteers armed with the facts about recycling, 2- Educate the Charlottesville area public on issues of sustainable materials management, and 3- Engage the local community in a fun and friendly way to spread passion for better recycling techniques.

They held monthly info meetings with FUN activities
