Join AOZWI on December 5th for a Zero Waste Business Development Dinner and Discussion.
The Appalachia Ohio Zero Waste Initiative (AOZWI) collaborates with communities to build local wealth and environmental health by increasing waste diversion and supporting the development of a zero waste economy. The AOZWI is coordinated by Rural Action in partnership with the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs at Ohio University and funded by the Sugar Bush Foundation, a supporting organization of the Ohio University Foundation.
