Apologies for Cross-Postings

" Zero in on Zero Waste - Don't let your Bottom Line go to Waste"

Join us for the First Annual Zero Waste Business
Conference on Thursday, June 8, 2006, in Anaheim,
CA. Zero Waste experts and corporations will
highlight how businesses have saved money by
implementing Zero Waste practices in their daily
operations. This conference is designed to bring
Orange County businesses, government agencies and
nonprofits together with knowledgeable experts in
the field of Zero Waste who can demonstrate how
to turn a company's waste stream into a profitable resource.

The California Integrated Waste Management Board
has adopted Zero Waste as one of its seven goals
in its Strategic Plan. The Urban Environmental
Accords include Zero Waste as a goal by 2040. The
GrassRoots Recycling Network highlights Zero
Waste Businesses as those that divert more than
90% of their waste from landfill & incineration.
Many communities in California are adopting Zero
Waste goals and developing plans to implement
those goals. Terry Tamminen, Governor
Schwarzenegger?s Special Assistant on Energy and
the Environment, has challenged California to achieve Zero Waste by 2025.

Many laws are now being proposed that affect
local business regulating how and what can be
disposed, both here and abroad. Businesses can
position themselves strategically to offer
products in an environmentally sound way while
minimizing their cost of production.

The day will be kicked off by our dynamic keynote
speakers including: Terry Tamminen, Special
Advisor to the Governor on Energy and the
Environment and former Secretary of CalEPA;
Eiko Risch, Division Manager of Ricoh Electronics
Inc. (which diverts over 90% of its waste from
