Be Zero's Trash Diet Workshop


Trash. We all make it. And we can all make a whole lot less.

The average American produces 4.5 pounds of trash per day! By becoming an informed, empowered, and conscious consumer, you'll understand how simple, easy, and healthy it is to shrink your trash!

This isn't just about trash, it's about supporting our local communities, becoming resourceful, slowing down, and simplifying our lives. The Trash Diet Workshop is held in a living zero waste home. You'll see for yourself what living trash-less looks like in a real home. 

what people are saying:

I absolutely loved the Trash Diet Workshop. It was so inspiring to be in a Zero Waste home and see how doable living this way can be. I learned so much and honestly, before this class felt I was a person who didn’t produce a lot of trash- but after seeing all that Andrea does- I realize I have a lot of room for improvement. I went home right after the workshop and started immediately implementing the things I learned. I love that the problem of trash is something we as individuals have the power to do something about and Andrea makes it so approachable, easy and fun!
— Nikki Roatch, Colorado
Andrea is a passionate and inspiring person! She is a wealth of knowledge and ideas for others who seek to shift their attitudes and actions regarding waste. I felt empowered and excited to make changes immediately in my life that will be both manageable and sustainable.
— Erin Dell, Highlands Ranch, Colorado
“Andrea is so knowledgeable, helpful, and enlightening, being able to see how she does it by being in her home was so eye opening to how easy it can be! I love that she does take this lifestyle to the extreme so we can see that is is possible if you have enough passion for it. I would highly recommend taking her class to anyone who is interested in this lifestyle. She makes it so easy and so fun!”
— Trisha Lopez, Casper, Wyoming
“Andrea opened up her home and showed our small group what it’s really like to live a zero waste life. She gave us tons of practical tips and reminded us that becoming zero waste is a lifestyle change that will take time but is completely worth it, both for the environment and simplifying your life. I left with a great set of tools, tips, and excitement to make my life more sustainable.”
— Lacey Ankenman, Boulder, Colorado
“The Trash Diet Workshop was super fun, easy to follow and learn from, and really showed me concrete ways I can use a zero waste lifestyle to create more time and space in my life. I was skeptical at first, but seeing Andrea’s whole house — streamlined and simplified — was beautiful! I could really see how zero waste life isn’t a strategy, it’s a lifestyle that permeates each room and makes things work. I’m excited to slowly shift my habits towards zero waste and see how much more time and energy I get!”
— Ginger Kern, Boulder, Colorado
