WHY WE DO IT

Our Zero Waste Commitment

Zero Waste is about so much more than just waste.

We know this because we have seen it and experienced it.

But we understand that this is not yet the case for everyone.

It is for this reason that we consider it our responsibility to lead by example, by establishing Zero Waste as our own organizational direction, and by sharing the founding Zero Waste principles and policies with both the facilities that we work with, as well as with the communities we serve.

ZERO WASTE PRINCIPLES

The International Zero Waste Definition & Zero Waste Hierarchy

These represent the founding policies and practices of Zero Waste, which we believe in and operate by.

“Zero Waste is the conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse, and recovery of products, packaging, and materials without burning, and with no discharges to land, water, or air that threaten the environment or human health”
