Description

Take on the Zero-Waste-to-Landfill Challenge!

If it's not already an important mantra in your manufacturing facility, "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" will become one as more and more landfills reach capacity. To learn how you can manage waste better without hurting your bottom line, plan to participate in the Green Manufacturer Network's Workshop on Dec. 7. The event will focus on approaches manufacturers can implement to achieve zero-waste-to-landfill.

A plant tour of Burt’s Bees will give you the opportunity to see a zero-waste-to-landfill program in action! Burt's Bees produces earth-friendly natural skin care, natural beauty, and natural personal care products. Taking care of the environment is part of the DNA of Burt's Bees — they are committed to becoming the greenest personal care company on the planet.

In October of 2009 Burt’s Bees manufacturing site reached zero landfill starting from 30 tons per month in January 2007. Their headquarters and distribution facilities met the ZWTL mark in April 2010. A typical household puts more trash in the ground than Burt’s Bees entire organization. Presentations and discussions with industry experts will get you started on how to do the same in your own company!
