When your library book is signed by the author :) !! #zerowaste #trashtalk #orcafootprints #michellemulder
Want to thank @maizalto for the #zerofoodwaste  #beantamales we had at our meeting tonight about a series of #zerowasteeducation events in #Toronto. Including a really big #zerowastelifestyle event in October!! Details to come very soon. @torontotoollibrary @yourecofriend @50shadesofgreentoronto @itsahashtaglife thanks for the great night, let's just say I'm pumped!!
Using images or text of desired materials or #wastestreams helps to ensure the proper deposit. The proper colours. Appropriate size. A little bit of humour helps too. Personalizing to reflect the #brand #corevalues is a great opportunity to appeal to #consumers in a new #valuesbased way.
Sometimes it's best to just say it bluntly. Be honest. Don't pretend that #coffeecups are to go in #recycle bin when they are actually #landfilled. Don't become the source of doubt in a #circulareconomy @starbucks @timhortons know this all to well. #timhortons #starbucks #candobetter.
#wastediversionfail - using that inappropriate colour schemes. It's best to mimic the #municipalwaste or #residentialwaste colour coding system. Blue is for recyclables. Not waste. #zerowaste is accessible with the right #diversion messaging in place.
#wastediversion #fail - is it #waste or is it a #recyclingprogram? Be clear and consistent. Only use positive reinforcement, don't list what doesn't belong. I know you call it a #recycling program but don't use words where they can be confusing.
When it comes to collection of #recyclables or #wastediversion in a #publicspace there are a few proven #bestpractices that optimize #waste #diversion performance goals. Starting with clear and consistent signage that use realistic images or photos, #mobiusloop or #recycle symbol, positive reinforcement (don't list unacceptable items), use minimal text, and especially coordinate colours to residential diversion programs (#municipalwaste #municipalsolidwaste #msw ). Don't reinvent the wheel. Do what works. What spans language barriers. What is closest to the intuitive natural behaviour. #zerowaste is achievable with the right diversion practices.
#bcorp #impactassessment and #businessplan presentation to a client this afternoon. Proposing some changes in policy and management practices to earn some heavily weighted points with the transparency and operational procedures to #proveit
Checked out the new @organicgarage in the #junctionto - small but reasonably size #bulksection, #kambucha bar complete with #reusablebottle program, #biodegradable bags, reusable bag program. Not overly impressed from a #sustainability (lack of local, little tied to community, no mention of #ecofriendly efforts) or #zerowaste perspective. Lots of #organic produce and products.
