Hi, I'm Tara McKenna, founder of

The Zero Waste Collective, a globally recognized brand promoting a life with less waste and more joy! I'd love to work with you!

Years ago I was snorkelling in Bali, Indonesia, when I discovered just how bad our global trash problem was while I witnessed fish swim with garbage in the coral reef. As a professional urban planner at the time, I wasn't quite sure what I could do to make a difference.


Eventually I realized that it was time to change my lifestyle by reducing my waste. Through that process I created The Zero Waste Collective, a blog and community to inspire people from all walks of life to live with less waste and more joy!

You may have had a similar and impactful moment in your life too, one where everything changed for you and you knew that you wanted to leave this planet better than you found it.


As an eco minded entrepreneur, your purpose is just as important, if not more so, than your profit. I totally get that. But you need more people to know about your business! You're looking for sustainable growth, and I'm here to help you achieve that!

If you are looking to start a biz, or grow your brand in a major way and take your eco entrepreneurship to the next level, I've got your back. It can be overwhelming to do and be all of the things in your business, but together we can create the road map you need to get ahead!

Don't let it take years for you to take the next step, let's work together today!



Success requires a growth mindset. Coaching to start or grow your eco friendly business and brand is a lot like self care, it's an investment. Having built a globally recognized, eco friendly brand in under 3 years, I can help you fast track your next steps so you can focus on making the world a better place. Are you in?



Need a keynote speaker or panelist? I've spoken for companies like McCain and Industrious. Want to share your eco friendly products or campaign with my community? Let's collaborate on sponsored content; I've worked with big brands (like IKEA and Converse) and startups. Let's work together!
