Repurpose Project Partners to Zero Waste Gainesville Florida Alachua County effort to help school and business reduce waste

Our Zero Waste consulting service will help your business move towards Zero Waste with the goal of achieving it.  We offer two service levels: a basic consulting service and a more in-depth consulting service with our Zero Waste certification.

Zero Waste is the conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse, and recovery of products, packaging, and materials without burning and with no discharges to land, water or air that threaten the environment or human health. (Definition is from the Zero Waste International Alliance’s peer review definition of Zero Waste which we align with)

Why would my business do this? Being a responsible steward of the planet is quickly becoming an expectation of businesses.  As more people become aware of the limits of our planet and the environmental harms of business as usual, they are beginning to vote with their dollars to help support responsible business models.  We can help you reduce your business waste, reduce the need for resources in the first place, reduce the need for energy use, and save your business money in the process. Our RPP Zero Waste Certification can help community members realize your commitment to reducing waste and your responsibility to protect our amazing planet for future generations.
