The Zero Waste Kids - The Series

The first animation series about Zero Waste!

Over het project

The Zero Waste Kids is the project of adaptation of the successful books The (almost) Zero Waste Family and The (almost) Zero Waste Kids by Jérémie Pichon and Bénédicte Moret, which sold over 200 000 units !

Yes… they are funny, cool, with a simple but really necessary message:

Jérémie and Béné are the parents of the (almost) Zero Waste Family. Mali and Dia their kids!

In 2014, they decided to start a new Zero Waste life.

In 2016, they published the book THE (ALMOST) ZERO WASTE FAMILY THE GUIDE (French Title : FAMILLE (PRESQUE) ZERO DECHET « ZE GUIDE) by Thierry Souccar Editions. 6 months later, they published a new version of the book dedicated to the kids THE (ALMOST) ZERO WASTE KIDS  (French Title : LES ZENFANTS (presque) ZERO DECHET)

“With this book, good ideas of a few people turn into a great opportunity for all.”
- Nicolas Hulot

"The Zero Waste is not a trend, it’s a necessity, a duty”
- Béa Johnson

The world is in a sorry state.. but the good news is : we can make things change ! 


More concretely, we aim to produce :

  • 52 episodes of 5 minutes of animation, with the Zero Waste Heroes… with all ingredients of a humorous and cartoon-like series!  
  • 52 live-tutorials of 3 minutes (with animation incrustation), based on the themes of the episodes, to put Zero Waste into action, in an easy and entertaining way : organise a zero waste birthday, install a compost, prepare a picnic, go shopping, etc.
