How to use zero in a sentence?

  1. Kathryn Kellogg:

    Recycling should really be viewed as a last resort rather than the first line of defense, we need to be recycling less, not more. The zero-waste community is going above and beyond recycling by addressing the source of the problem: humans are producing far too much waste. Blogger Kathryn Kellogg has stored the bulk of her waste in a mason jar for the past two years. (Instagram Photo/going.zero.waste) According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans generate more than 250 million tons of trash while only recycling about 1.51 pounds of the approximately 4.5 pounds of waste each person creates daily. Zero waste does not mean producing no waste at all; it simply means sending nothing to a landfill, said Kellogg. While the philosophy of zero waste does include recycling, it embodies a whole-system approach to the vast amount of resources consumed and waste left behind. According to the Grassroots Recycling Network, the movement’s goal is to maximize recycling while minimizing waste and reducing consumption.

  2. John Legere:

    While the carriers are breaking every promise they’ve ever made with their knock-off upgrade programs, we’re racing full speed ahead, making one of our most popular moves even better, jUMP! On Demand is the best way to get a new smartphone whenever you want. Zero out the door. Zero at upgrade. Zero fees. Zero wait. Zero BS.

  3. Arthur C. Clarke:

    The best measure of a man's honesty isn't his income tax return. It's the zero adjust on his bathroom scale.

  4. Sheriff Chad Bianco:

    I shouldn’t be here tonight having to do this again, we are sadly in a time where there is a growing population that has absolutely zero respect for other people. They have zero respect for authority. They have zero respect for law enforcement.

  5. Jose Calderon:

    All stores zero, zero, zero, everything red. It's super difficult.
