Here is a nice step forward, but I hate to burst their
bubble by telling them that they aren’t the first national conference to
go Zero Waste … the GRRN National Zero Waste Conference in NYC a few
years ago beat em to it, and I’m sure the CRRA has gone there as well.
But hey, this is a biggie, and it’s in another country! Bravo!
