Hello All,
I attended this conference last year when it was in LA, and I recommend it
heartily to anyone especially dealing with 'zero waste' issues here in NYC.
Consider getting certified as a Zero Waste Professional, too.  The
connections and credibility will put you in good stead to proactively
address and benefit from opportunities that will arise from our City's new
Zero Waste to 30 plan.
Best to all,
