Business Waste Reduction Tips

Imagine a society that uses less, recycles more, and takes resource conservation to higher levels. That's the vision of CalRecycle:

"To inspire and challenge Californians to achieve the highest waste reduction,
recycling and reuse goals in the nation. Through innovation and creativity,
sound advancements in science and technology, and efficient programs that
improve economic vitality and environmental sustainability, we build a stronger California."

There are many benefits for businesses that reduce waste. The business may be regarded more favorably by customers, the public, and their own employees. However, perhaps more important, businesses that reduce waste motivate people and other businesses to do the same.
