Tilos’ trash to triumph – the world’s first zero-waste island

In a remarkable green transformation, the Greek island of Tilos has emerged as a global pioneer, achieving self-sufficiency in renewable energy and proudly proclaiming itself as the world’s first zero-waste haven. This small paradise between Rhodes and Kos has bid farewell to landfill sites, with a 100% diversion rate of waste.

Spearheaded by the Just Go Zero project, Tilos embarked on an educational journey, empowering residents to segregate waste into recyclables, organics, and non-recyclables. The island’s success story is a testament to the power of community-driven initiatives, fostering a harmonious balance between development and nature while attracting eco-conscious visitors and ushering in new job opportunities in renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, and eco-tourism.
