Cash for Trash Panel, Tues. March 27-$


Hi.  This group is putting together some good panels, focusing on sustainability initiatives within parts of the NYC business community. Their last panel on slow foods was great.  I'm volunteering with them, and encourage you to consider attending. - Dan


The Sustainable Business Committee of

the Columbia Business School Alumni Club of New York invites you to 


Cash for Trash


TUESDAY, MARCH 27, 2012, 5:30PM

What if “waste” were a thing of the past? Companies are finding clever ways to convert their waste streams into resources. Upcycling waste to new products. Recycling garbage so it does not end up in landfills. Our panel will explore opportunities and challenges of getting cash for trash and tell us how doing good for the environment is also good business. It is a dirty tale, with a clean outcome.
