Zero Waste Consulting
What is zero waste?
Zero waste is an attainable goal for individuals to imitate natural life cycles. Currently, the majority of industries follow a linear system that results in waste being buried in landfills. By designing and managing processes, items normally thrown away are conserved and reused. When a business decides to go zero waste, they are helping the environment by not contributing to the growing volume of toxic material effecting our land, water and air quality.
For a business to become certified in zero waste, it is necessary to divert 90% of their total trash from being incinerated or buried in a landfill. After having an initial meeting to discuss individual needs and performing a waste audit, a baseline can be determined. It is then possible to begin implementing different practices and policies that make the goal of zero waste a reality. These practices vary from business to business and may entail creating a composting program to investing in reusable packaging.
By becoming a certified zero waste business, you are leading the way to a more environmentally conscious planet. The process of diverting 90% of your waste will increase efficiency while enabling you to save money in the long term. In addition to this, becoming zero waste increases the opportunity for innovation in the reuse of materials. New products and partnerships can be created while saving the environment.
