Wednesday: Celebrating Champions & Innovators


Today we are celebrating the champions and innovators who are disrupting traditional business models to embrace waste reduction initiatives.  We will tell the stories that celebrate what is possible when organizations approach waste reduction positively and progressively and those that are moving the conversation on waste reduction forward to what the next great innovation will be. 

Champion Profiles

Do you know a community, individual or organization making big gains in waste reduction? Are they improving product or system designs? Have they formed a unique partnership where reuse, refuse, or repair is integrated in their business?

We want to hear these stories!  Let’s work together to share what’s possible. Send your story to or on social media using the hashtag #WasteReductionWeek.
