Sustainability & Resource Management:

What is Zero Waste?

Zero Waste modelZero Waste is about resource efficiency. Ask an engineer to define waste and the answer is "Inefficiency." Ask an environmentalist to define waste and the answer is "Pollution." Ask an economist to define waste and the answer is "Lost Revenue." Our Zero Waste Program trains individuals to work with businesses and communities to analyze their waste stream and create a plan for waste minimization. The ultimate goal: Zero Waste. The triple bottom line: People, Planet, and Profit.

We already recycle. Isn't that enough?
