Working Towards an Environmentally Sustainable Future for Arizona

At Local First Arizona, we're passionate about sustainability, whether it be economic or environmental sustainability. Environmental sustainability goes hand in hand with economic sustainability in ensuring that our communities can look forward to prosperous futures for all of their citizens. 


How Local First Arizona Advocates for Environmental Sustainability

We've worked to make all of our events Towards Zero Waste (TZW) events

Thanks to the help of numerous volunteers and event partners, we managed to divert almost 8,000 pounds of waste that was produced at our events from landfills in 2018. 

We help our business members go green

At our Phoenix networking mixers, we've introduced e-waste collection to provide a secure location to dispose of e-waste. We also consult with our members one-on-one to help them change systems to reduce waste, conserve energy, reduce water use and create a sustainable work culture.
