Zero Waste

WHAT IS ZERO WASTE?

 

The goal of zero waste is to redefine and move to a circular economy where we take as little as possible new resources and produce ideally zero waste. The circular economy mimics nature in that there is no waste. So instead of discarding resources, we create a system where all resources can be resumed fully back into the system. Zero waste is more an ideal than a hard target.

Cities

The goal is to continuously reduce waste generation and improve waste management systems. Aruba’s waste management systems still have a long way to go to mainstream Zero Waste and our mission is to questions the decisions and demand more sustainable solutions.

Business

Waste is the result of a system inefficiency. Not only waste symbolises bad design but it also costs businesses money.  We want to support businesses on the island in making the necessary changes to move towards a circular economy.

Lifestyle

,As consumers we have a lot of power, every time we buy something we are casting a vote, every decision we make every day is either destroying or saving the planet. We want to teach individuals that a  zero waste lifestyle can help us to reduce costs, eat healthier, live smarter and reduce our environmental footprint.

ABOUT US

We are two sisters who became very concerned about what our waste and living habits have done to the planet but are very hopeful to turn it back around by spreading awareness

Desiree Arends - Founder

Guatemalan born and raised. Since my father’s family is Aruban, we moved to Aruba for a couple of years before leaving abroad to study Business and Management and travel the world. Through these experiences I learned the seriousness of the climate crisis we are facing, and the importance of taking responsibility of our actions as individuals and as a community.

Denisse Arends - Co-founder

Also born and raised in Guatemala. I lived in Aruba for a year before going to the Netherlands to do a Masters in Public Health Nutrition. Through  my life experience and education I learned that eating a Whole Foods Plant Based Diet is the best for my health and the planet’s. Even though I’m a nutritionist by profession I found out I care too much about our environment therefore, I became a co-founder of Zero Waste Aruba with my sister.

What we do

As Zero Waste Aruba we aim to raise public awareness on the island about the impact that waste has on our environment and the importance of waste reduction and waste management in all aspects of life. More specifically, our focus will be on making the waste problems known, motivate sustainable change of behavior and actively support the involvement of the concerned parties.
