Toward Zero Waste

TZW earth header 2FACT: An 80% reduction in waste from your home or business can be relatively easy and even profitable.

What’s the big idea?

With your leadership, we aim to reduce the amount of waste going to the landfill, increase reuse and recycling of existing resources, and increase purchasing of recycled and environmentally preferable products.

How does it work?

You commit to at least a 50% reduction of waste in your business, and we support you with free technical assistance and promotional materials to help you achieve your goals.

Is a 50% reduction possible?

We’ve asked the hard questions of industry and business leaders in waste reduction, and according to our local experts, it is possible! Actually, they advised that an 80% reduction in waste from your business can be relatively easy...and even profitable! Take a look at this list of Sustainable Connections Members who are already participating in Toward Zero Waste.
