The House of Zero Waste (Maison du Zéro Déchet), located in the Montmartre district of Paris, is helping visitors to embrace a zero waste lifestyle by offering practical workshops and training sessions.
The House of Zero Waste opened in Paris in July 2017 as a space for discussion on all things zero waste. It is a joint initiative of Zero Waste France, Zero Waste Paris, and other Parisian associations and collectives invested in waste reduction.
The resource centre also houses a shop where visitors can find products they may need to live while producing less waste and protect the environment.
The idea behind The House of Zero Waste came about after the first ever Zero Waste Festival held in 2016 by Zero Waste France, an environmental protection NGO specialising in waste reduction. Festival-goers as well as other citizens, communities and businesses in Paris expressed the desire for a resource centre dedicated to the zero waste approach and processes.
Practical workshops and training sessions include “Zero Waste Footsteps”, How to Shop in Zero Waste Mode and DIY Candle Making.
