Ekologi brez meja (Ecologists without Borders) is an NGO which grew from two ‘Let’s Cleanup Slovenia’ campaigns that are still considered the largest volunteers events in the history of the nation. We managed to connect 289.000 (or 14% of population) of individuals, businesses, NGOs, institutions and even President’s office, who later decorated us with the order of merit. After 2012, we decided to focus on dealing with waste at its source.

We coordinate the Zero Waste Slovenija programme, which is a part of Zero Waste Europe network. With our help, six Slovenian municipalities – among them also Ljubljana – set their zero waste goals. With Zadruga Dobrote as a partner, we set up Tekstilnica: separate collection and regular monthly exchanges of textiles and second hand clothes. The project contributed to generation of seven new green jobs. With the project Volk sit, koza cela, we draw the attention to food waste problems in Slovenia. Project Zdrave ritke aims at breaking the myths about the use of cloth nappies. We are a part of the global Let’s do it! movement of 112 countries and we helped start Let’s do it Mediterranean.

Our mission is activation, motivation and cooperation of individuals, communities, policy makers, industry, businesses and researchers in the area of an efficient use of natural resources with the aim to reduce costs, preserve energy and create new green jobs.

Zero Waste Europe was created to empower communities to rethink their relationship with resources.

In a growing number of regions, local groups of individuals, businesses and city officials are taking significant steps towards eliminating waste in our society. Zero Waste Europe engages these groups at two levels:

  • Supporting local groups with independent knowledge and streamlined tools to drive change more efficiently,
  • Structuring the movement internationally to better represent the interests of our communities at the EU level and engage policy makers with a unified voice.

We are both a knowledge network and an advocacy group, representing active communities in countries across the EU.

We want to re-design our society so that all superfluous waste is eliminated and everything that is produced can be re-used, repaired, composted or recycled back into the system. Anything that can’t be repaired, composted or recycled should be re-designed and replaced or banned from entering the market.
