WashPIRG is seeking an entry-level Campaign Associate to help lead our Zero Waste campaign efforts.
We live in a society that encourages us to constantly consume and throw away things. From to-go cups with plastic lids to plastic bags and utensils, people throw away tons of this plastic “stuff” everyday. We use these things for all of 5 or 10 minutes and throw it away without thinking about it, but with single-use plastics, there really is no “away.” All of this waste not only clogs our landfills, trashes our parks, and litters our streets, but it washes into our rivers and oceans where it can harm wildlife and eventually our health.
Our Zero Waste campaign aims to move Washington beyond plastics, starting by eliminating the worst types like single-use plastics.
The WashPIRG Zero Waste Campaign Associate who will spearhead this campaign and work with our experienced team of advocates, researchers, and digital and communications experts.
Entry-level candidates are encouraged to apply; we provide training on advocacy and organizing skills, as well as oversight and on-the-ground training by an experienced advocate.

We value organizing experience, including building campus or community groups.
