Conservation Consulting for Small Businesses

Volunteers will consult with local small businesses on how they can change their business practices to save on water, energy, material and other wastes.

Project Context

The world's large businesses may account for more than half of the carbon emission, small businesses and individuals can still make a big contribution. Plus, carbon emission is not the only thing ailing our planet.
