Managing waste is good for business, but managing waste can also mean the creation of new businesses who see it as a resource. Today we discuss how the Renovos organization helps businesses deal with the huge amount of waste in today’s world, while saving money & appealing to today’s educated consumer more effectively.

Director of Business Development, Douglas Farquhar, contacted us via our yahoo email address and introduced us to Renovos Organization and their amazing bag program that helps reduce the volume of waste headed to the landfill. This really is an amazing ecological and social organization that provides jobs for challenged individuals and stimulates a sustainable economy as well.

Learn about reducing waste, business plan activities that made this program work, the behind-the-scenes activities of running an organization like this with so many projects on the go… and much more.
