Zero Waste Network, Sydney

Zero Waste Network Sydney launched on the 22nd November 2017 and their primary aim is to help residents, local governments and businesses change the way they manage waste, conserving resources and creating sustainable local jobs. Their ambition is to grow the reuse, repair and recycling economy, generating local jobs and diverting more materials from landfill.

Nook designed the logo and visual identity for Zero Waste Network Sydney.

This was then applied to the new Zero Waste Network Australia website (formerly Community Recycling Network Australia - CRNA).

We produced a launch video to showcase the value of the Network and encourage local government and recycling enterprises to join, as well as infographics to be used to promote their vision.
