Reduce Waste


That’s how much you consume in one year. Wow.

Now, imagine that you slimmed down the amount of materials you consume? You could easily shed a couple pounds of “waste weight” every day, and so reduce your impact on the environment dramatically.

The biggest impact of any product you use is actually found upstream in the manufacturing of that product – the natural resources, water and energy used to make the material – and in the transport of that product to your store. By reducing that amount of goods and materials we buy and consume, we can make a significant reduction in the lifecycle impact of those goods on the environment.

What’s your first step in slimming down? REDUCE what you consume and what you waste – it’ll be good for your wallet, and good for the environment.

With a few simple changes, you can Reduce Waste at Work and Reduce Waste at Home.
