We've all heard the Three "R's" - Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. The Green Zone is all about looking at the Three "R's" from the viewpoint of the Three "E's"- Economy, Efficiency, and Environment.
Business recycling and waste reduction should be easy and cost effective. Typical business wastes-office paper, cardboard, food scraps-are generally more easily recycled because they are generated in large quantities. Some businesses can switch almost entirely to recycling collection services from trash collection services. Some may even be eligible for a recycling rebate from their collector. But business recycling isn't just about paper! There is a wide variety of recyclables generated by Rhode Island businesses and it couldn't be easier to get started with recycling.
An important feature of the Green Zone is publicly recognizing the environmental stewardship efforts of businesses in Rhode Island. Through the Green Zone in Action company profiles and awards for achievements in business recycling, GreenZoneRI.org can put a spotlight on your business, showcasing your green efforts to your customers and clients.
Waste reduction and recycling activities by RI businesses can make a difference. All Rhode Island businesses, small and large, are required recycling, and the Green Zone can help you put together a program that works for you. Please contact us to learn more about how your business can enter the Green Zone.
The Green Zone team can provide your business with a free, personalized Waste Assessment that will analyze the types of waste your company produces and help you implement a flexible, cost-saving, and efficient recycling program. We will work with you to continually look for ways to enhance your business' recycling and waste reduction activities.
