Who We Are
Established in 2016, Zero Waste Malaysia (“ZWM”) is a non-profit organisation and community group based in Malaysia advocating for sustainable development and aiming to increase the local community’s awareness in sustainable living.


Living zero waste is a journey of replacing disposables with reusables, and the 5Rs (Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot) is in the forefront of everything we do. We strive to adopt the zero waste lifestyle whilst creating an education and resource platform for the community. We encourage everyone to have a shift in mindset and practice the good, environmentally-responsible habits that will navigate us through our current disposable culture.
