Frequently Asked Questions

What does membership include?

Events, where you get to meet other like-minded professionals and build your network of low-waste resources. Access to educational courses, videos and other news to help build your knowledge and guide your progress in low-waste practices. And, at the Premium level, a custom content platform to showcase your story and business through our events, blog and social media channels.

How does the membership work?

By joining the GFDA, you’re committing to reducing your landfill contribution. In return, you receive a resource guide, a robust community and events to help guide and motivate your firm’s sustainability journey.

I already make low-waste practices my priority. What else can membership offer me?

That’s great. The GFDA is building a movement and together we can scale our environmental impact. Through GFDA events, resources and social networking, members can learn from each other and discover new low-waste products and services.

Is this a zero-waste movement?

No. We’re realistic. Our movement is about decreasing your contribution to our landfill system. Incremental change and recruiting more people to our cause are the ways to creating real impact we can measure.

I don’t have any sustainability practices in place, can I still join?

Yes! We welcome anyone who wants to learn and do better by our planet. We created the GFDA to help you preserve your right to make a living all while preserving the planet.

How is this different than LEED?

LEED focuses on green building and efficiency. We are focused on waste reduction and excess consumption.

Where are GFDA Chapters?

We have chapters in San Francisco, Denver, Seattle, and Los Angeles. If you’re interested in starting a chapter in your area, get in touch!

No. We take privacy very seriously. Your individual data will not be shared or made publicly available. The data we collect is for our internal use only.
