Holly’s quote, “Sustainability is a long-term commitment that requires, at times, short-term investments or temporary financial shortcomings. But in the long run, if it is done with integrity and committed planning with the right resources plugged in, the ROI will be there.” ends the article.
The ZWA Blog article, Zero waste moves from “best” to standard operating practices, gives an overview of the excellent article along with the commentary on the zero waste industry evolution.
