Zero In on Zero Waste Business Conference

Many cities across the country (and the world) are adopting zero waste policies, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, El Cajon, and Burbank. These policies will require that all businesses that operate within those cities adopt zero waste strategies.
The good news is--zero waste practices are actually profitable for your business! So, don't delay finding out how you can take the lead in your business to transition to zero waste and start saving...just like Toyota, Ricoh Electronics and hundreds of other companies that have already begun this journey! Learn from those who have been there and join us at the Premier Business Conference 3rd Annual "Zero In On Zero Waste: Don't Let your Bottom Line Go to Waste", an exclusive event to be held Thursday, June 26th, 2008 at the Ford Motor Company in Irvine, California. This is a one-of-a-kind event you don't want to miss.
Reducing your waste stream adds dollars to your bottom line, improves your corporate image and helps you maintain and attract customers and key employees. In today's economy, where customer's and employee's are asking "How green are you?", you can't afford to miss this opportunity to learn from the companies who have been making zero waste a reality--and reaping the profits from those efforts!
You and your staff?s attendance at this event will give you the resources and tools needed to  recession proof your business.   Your business  can save MONEY, time and set the example on why it is good to be green!    Register today at
