Leave No Trace


Whether you are striving for zero waste, less waste, or trying to eliminate plastic from your life, No Trace wants to help you achieve your goals.  Everyday shopping typically results in plastics and other materials that cannot be reused or recycled.  

The average American produces 4.3 lbs of waste everyday, and over half of that ends up in a landfill.  Landfills don’t allow waste to decompose, they contribute to greenhouse gas emissions in the form of methane, and can contaminate our drinking water supplies. We are also facing a shortage of appropriate space for landfills in the U.S. and globally.  

Every piece of garbage in the landfill represents a loss of resources and energy and a small failure of society to have better systems in place for reducing and eliminating waste.

No Trace is here to help you reduce landfill footprint.
