He spoke at Zero Waste Canada's latest event in Orillia on August 11, 2014. 

Connett’s research has taken him to communities around the world to profile successful Zero Waste initiatives. His latest book, The Zero Waste Solution, is a toolkit for “un-trashing” the planet and creating Zero Waste communities

Connett’s concern for social and environmental issues has led to a life of activism and service to others. He can be seen in the Jeremy Irons documentary TRASHED.
