New Jersey WasteWise Business Network – Member Testimonials

“Attending the New Jersey WasteWise Business Network meetings; hearing from speakers from diverse industries and organizations; having the opportunity to network with so many individuals from around the state; receiving the WasteWise Newsletter and updates on reducing waste and obtaining so much pertinent information to assist in being more sustainable and ‘green’ has really inspired me and enabled me to go above and beyond at work and in my community to reduce waste and increase recycling rates – THANK YOU”.

“Just a note to let you know that I very much enjoy the New Jersey WasteWise Business meetings and always look forward to attending them. The subject matter is always interesting and timely. I frequently come away with a new idea or a practice that we can use here at the Firm.

The Networking opportunities are also very valuable to our Green effort. In fact, thanks to a contact I made at the meeting, we are now recycling ALL of our lightbulbs and ballast in the building! I also share the newsletters with the Green Initiative committee at all nine of our offices.

I have been a member for nearly 10 years and look forward to attending for many more.”
