WeHateToWaste.com is a community of people just like you who hate to see things go to waste: food, energy, water — you name it! (You know the waste we’re talking about. It’s the kind that makes you cringe and cry out, “What a waste!”)
Our Founder and Her Dream
We were founded by “Junky Jacquie” Ottman, an expert and author on green marketing and “eco-innovation”. After 25 years working with
industry and government, she decided to make a difference in a new way: by empowering a community of like-minded Waste Watchers — the conservers, the repurposers, the mindful and the resourceful — to ignite a cultural change that can help reduce waste.
Starting by sharing our own everyday success stories with each other, she hopes to bring ardent waste-haters together with government and industry to help invent less wasteful products and services that can help people meet their needs more sustainably. Her dream: that we all can live lighter and more sustainably — with more time, money and freedom to do what really matters.
