Today, “reduce, reuse, recycle” is a way of life — and a way of business — for millions of individuals and organizations who understand the importance of diverting waste from landfills. But vague definitions, self-declared claims and undefined procedures can make it difficult to qualify and quantify these efforts. Businesses of all sizes are all working towards a unified goal: achieving zero waste.
