Manmade waste is not only ugly, hazardous, smelly and unsightly but it is also costly to the bottom line. Zero Waste aims to keep organic material out of landfills. Local governments around the world are embracing Zero Waste as a tool to address climate change. Gary Liss is president and managing director of Gary Liss & Associates, which helps government and private-sector clients create environmental projects with economic benefits. His workshop will review Global Zero Waste Community Principles and highlight how they apply to individual communities adopting Zero Waste and developing Zero Waste Strategic Plans. The class will then review Zero Waste Business Principles and go into detail on how to implement those principles. The lectures and workshops focus on strategies in your community, at work and at home. Learn more about Zero Waste and how cities are working to eliminate garbage.
