Where can businesses start?
Your journey to zero waste.
Setting goals to meet zero waste for a business can be overwhelming and many times confusing. It’s important to begin with the basics. What is your business throwing away? Knowing what waste is currently being generated will guide decision making for materials being purchased, engagement programs for employees and staff members, and how waste should be separated in order to prioritize reuse and recycling.
Our focus is to design programs to capture that waste and find solutions to manage it responsibly – from procurement to operations, each team plays a critical role in achieving zero waste.

Zero waste has become a popular, but multi-defined term. For businesses, zero waste is when 90% waste is diverted from landfill and incineration [Sources: ZWIA and TRUE].
