What is Zero Waste?
Zero waste is a concept that focuses on reducing your waste contributions by turning your waste into reusable resources. This can be achieved through single-stream recycling and reusing waste products, so their material life is extended. This prevents your waste from contributing to landfill or causing other environmental damage. Zero waste has become a big topic for businesses looking to improve their environmental footing and achieve their sustainable objectives.
The benefits of zero waste for your business
While reducing your environmental impact, zero waste also has other benefits for businesses that employ this essential strategy. 88% of consumers want brands to help them make a difference through their sustainability efforts, according to a study by Forbes.
If your business has targets on cutting emissions, a zero waste strategy can help. In 2019, landfills contributed 14.2 million metric tons of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. Stopping your waste from going to landfill allows you to prevent further emissions and extend the life of your waste products through recycling and creating new material resources.
