We are happy to announce that ZeroLandfillDenver (ZLD) has been adopted by Women in Design, Denver.  We are now looking for a new location to host this much-needed program so we need your help!

About the Program:

ZeroLandfill is an award-winning up cycling program held seasonally that diverts expired specification samples and supports the needs of local artists and art educators while reducing pressure on local landfill capacity.
Collection of materials from design firms to collection site during a specific window of time.
Collection requirements
  • Firms will bring Discontinued, expired or unused  samples only form their Designer library.  No paper or product catalogs or tip cards allowed.
  • Sort items by type in boxes with firm/organization name clearly marked
  • If possible, remove binders and/or backing and recycle at your home or workplace.
Seperation, sorting and weighing of samples. Volunteers needed.  Dates/ times to be determined.
This is often a fun, bonding interaction with amazing people from the community.
The public comes to take samples away for their use.

Host Site Space Requirements:

1. Warehouse room or a space to house collections of outdated/discontinued materials (100 s.f. min. is ideal)  This can be short term (4-6 weeks) 2-4 times a year

      OR  A permanent space so the collections can be collected and managed all year long from designers.  We still plan to only have 2-4 Harvest days open to the public (unless a site is open to letting people collect at any time.)
      OR Parking spaces in an exterior lot or along a building for a storage container (8’x48’ standard shipping container)

2. Parking for public during Harvest days.  10+ cars ideal

3. Accessibility to one designated person in charge

4. Room for staging space in or near the storage for Sorting and weighing


Wish List:

1.  Designate space full time so that collections can be taken and sorted all year. (scheduled by a volunteer)

2.  Above warehouse space plus use of box pallets and a fork lift.

3.  Access to a parking lot so public can remain outside during Harvest days.

4.  Access to a large Industrial scale



 If you do not have a site or space to provide, your company can still help support ZLD and WID.
  • Give money as Primary Sponsor $500 (logo on all print)
  • Donate money for items needed (i.e.: storage container, tools, gloves, events…)
  • Sponsor a Cultivate/Harvest day by providing food and beverages (Event coverage and product display)


Please let us know if you are interested in any of the following:
  • Core team volunteer (committee on WiD steering committee)
  • Volunteer for sorting or Harvest days
  • Produce up-cycled items as examples to share with the public
  • Want to be notified of Harvest (collection) days only

A word from our Student members…
A word from our Student members…


My name is Kristina Schock and I am a new student member of WID.  I recently attended an event and was inspired to become a building block of an already great community you have built for women.
As a senior studying Industrial Design at Metropolitan State University of Denver, I will be displaying works with my graduating class this December.  This event is a great chance to network for the 3 women that will be displaying products they designed and developed during their time in our program.  The event is open to the public and free.  There will be 13 designers in total displaying a variety of products from automotive and furniture to housewares and soft goods. There will be an open bar (beer and wine) and light snacks, as well as a few food trucks at the event.


Please help us spread the word among design professionals for our show.  I look forward to growing our community together.
