Organizing an environmentally-responsible event: behind the scenes of the Zero Waste Festival
AQZD and CQEER
After a few months of experimenting with zero waste at home with her partner, Cynthia decided to become an activist by getting involved with the zero waste movement. An organizer at heart, she is a production director, tour manager and stage manager for the theater. This passion for theater arts and dream vacations allies with sustainable development and cooperative economies. Cynthia has a certain talent for pulling together people and leveraging their strengths. You can follow her zero waste efforts on her blog, Chéri-e j'ai réduit les déchets (Darling, I shrunk the waste).
