Waste Wise promotes sustainability while improving your bottom line

Minnesota Waste Wise operates on a simple premise: “Less waste is smart business for a better environment.” The program has two main goals, says Waste Wise Executive Director Jill Curran. "Zero waste, on the waste front, and net zero energy on the energy front.”

Businesses in Moorhead and Alexandria received firsthand advice during recent on-site visits by Curran as she and her staff assist businesses across the state in their sustainability efforts. As underscored by the businesses, making progress requires a companywide mind-set.
