[GreenYes] Zero In on Zero Waste Business Conference Program

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!
