Environmental Protection Agency's WasteWise Program

I first heard of the EPA's WasteWise program from Hallmark's website where it was used to reinforce their environmental efforts.   Curious I looked for more info on the EPA website.

" ... WasteWise Endorser Program engages state and local government agencies, trade associations, nonprofit organizations, and businesses to help educate their members and constituents about the benefits of reducing solid waste ... WasteWise Challenge helps members expand existing waste reduction programs and adopt new, proven strategies. Each challenge focuses on a specific material or product type."

"By pledging to the challenge, WasteWise members can receive assistance to implement waste reduction activities targeting a specific material or product type and potentially earn recognition as an environmental leader. "
