“I made many valuable contacts at the meeting, including Scott Donachie the CEO/ Founder of Companies for Zero Waste and look forward to working with many of them on-going.
I learned a lot about the composting efforts in cities large and small. These efforts are key to our strategy for circular product design.
Food and facilities were good and public transportation access was great!
I look forward to a future conference to assess progress toward a circular economy and zero waste.”
