3rd Annual Zero Waste Awards

Celebrate the recipients of the 2017 Zero Waste Event and Business Awards! These events and businesses have worked hard to divert and minimize materials in their commitment to achieving Zero Waste.

PRC is privileged to recognize those who recognize those who adopt and utilize strategies to achieve Zero Waste including waste avoidance, reuse, recycling, and composting.
