|A former member||
The Zero Waste Business Conference at San Diego's Marina Village Conference Center will feature business experts from the likes of Toyota, Hewlett-Packard, Hilton, and the Del Mar Fairgrounds. They will share the information and tools you need to start an effective and profitable Zero Waste program immediately. This will help businesses in a number of ways:
• Reduce cost of waste management;
• Increase savings in consumption of energy and materials;
• Lower distribution costs;
• Prepare to be in compliance with county and upcoming state commercial source separation requirements;
• Improve corporate image of environmental performance among regulators, customers, the public and your employees.
Keynotes will be from the Acting Director of California's new Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery, and Captain Charles Moore of the Algalita Marine Research Foundation and discoverer of the Pacific Garbage Patch.
The Conference is co-hosted by Zero Waste San Diego and Earth Resource Foundation, two non-profit organizations whose collective mission is to empower businesses and the public with the tools needed to make environmentally sustainable choices and changes where people live, work and play.
