Zero Waste is Good for the Bottom Line
One of the toughest challenges facing businesses today is the issue of waste. Consumption of goods and materials is rapidly increasing and as a result so is the amount of waste produced. It is becoming more difficult and more expensive to dispose of this waste. We need a lasting solution that doesn’t hurt the environment or the bottom line. The Zero Waste Development and Expansion Act (HR 3237) proposed by Rep. Keith Ellison (MN) would fund infrastructure, technology and community outreach programs that will help prevent waste at the source and fund cost-effective solutions to the challenge posed by waste.
