How does it work?

Courses are available for free to students of member campuses. Want to learn more about Membership? Head here. Each Course is about two hours long and broken up into 3 to 5 lessons, so that you can take your time getting through the material. Each lesson contains a short video and a “quiz” after (we like to think of these more as a reflection check).

To earn Leadership Certification, you must complete all 5 courses. After completing the courses and the accompanying quizzes, you will be awarded a Beyond Waste Leadership certificate and a zero-waste gift from our sponsorship partner for that quarter.
