I periodically get asked for advice on how to setup a zero waste event or how to convert a business to zero waste. It can be a very daunting task with so many things to consider – who hauls the waste, can you source compostable and recyclable products, how do you educate consumers, and much more. Don’t fret, you’re not the only person who finds this type of project challenging. Fortunately, there are some great resources on the web and here’s a few to help you out:
- Grassroots Recycling Network Zero Waste Page
- Zero Waste Alliance
- Article: 4 Steps to Get You on the Path to Zero Waste
- EcoCycle’s Zero Waste page
- Tips for Throwing a Zero Waste Event
Also, I wrote a post a while ago chronicling some of the things that we did at Eco-Products to help us move towards zero waste. It’s a journey, so hang in there.
