While recycling is an important part of the journey to Zero Waste at any business, businesses that have reduced wasteful processes and implemented reuse systems before focusing on recycling have realized the most savings. This webinar demonstrates how to save money, reduce your environmental footprint, and make the best use of available tools and resources on those all-important R’s: Reduce and Reuse.
CONF: Tuesday, October 4, 2016 to Wednesday, October 5, 2016:
Register now to attend the largest and longest standing sustainability conference in the Midwest. Now in our 9th year, we are gearing up for our best show ever! With more than 25 workshops, three mobile tours, two keynote luncheons, a breakfast plenary session, a networking reception and dozens of vendors and exhibitors, you’ll find takeaways in every hour of this two-day event. Hotel rooms are inexpensive and within walking distance and Dubuque’s riverfront is gorgeous when the leaves turn in the fall.
WBNR: Wednesday, October 12, 2016 (11:30-12:30 pm):
Composting has great potential to stimulate rural economies, protect our food supply, conserve water, invest in healthy soils and reduce waste. And the news keeps getting better: Nebraska is already well-positioned to reap these myriad of benefits. Hear about exciting projects taking root throughout the state, and explore the opportunities and challenges in creating a program.
