The world of comics, heroes, villains, and meta-humans has been an integral part of popular culture since they first became popular in the late 1930s. At first glance, zero waste and comics do not sound like a likely pairing, but they are more interrelated than you might think. The United Kingdom Without Incineration Network released a comic, Everything Goes Somewhere, to help kids build the understanding to help them follow a zero waste lifestyle.

The New York City Department of Sanitation also created a comic book series for 2nd and 3rd graders, DSNY Comic Book #1, and 4th to 6th graders, DSNY Comic Book #2. The comics create a captivating and engaging illustrative guide to building a zero waste understanding. Kids, with their growing and open minds, are more likely to retain the information and build the essential understanding to practice a zero waste lifestyle. Famous comic book characters, such as Captain Planet, also provide a rich source of fun and engaging material for kids to engage the concepts of zero waste and following a sustainable lifestyle.
