Waste Reduction

Consulting Services

There is no such thing as away.  When you throw something away, it must go somewhere.

- Annie Leonard

Live a Low-Waste Lifestyle!

Let us help you inventory your waste, assess priorities and develop a plan to reduce your overall waste.  We will work with you to identify the changes that are most (or least) important to you.  You will receive a written plan and follow-up coaching sessions to help you stay on track and make course corrections as needed.

What to Expect 

Initial Phone Consultation

The initial consultation will give you an opportunity to learn more about our services and ask questions.  We will also learn more about each other to determine if this solution is right for you and if so; if we are a good fit to work together.  There are no fees associated with the initial consultation and it usually lasts about 30-50 minutes.

The 5 R's

The assessment and plans will focus on the 5 R's of a Low-Waste and Sustainable Lifestyle:
  • Reduce
  • Reuse
  • Repair
  • Repurpose
  • Recycle/Compost

Initial Assessment & Waste Inventory

You have a couple options here.  I can either visit you and personally inventory one full bag of trash or you can use our tool to inventory your trash yourself.  Either way, the goal is to prepare a list of your common trash items as well as your recyclables.  This list will be the starting point for discussion around developing your individualized waste reduction plan.

Plan Development

With your feedback and input, I will develop a plan of action for you to begin reducing your waste.  The plan will outline the waste to be reduced, how you will reduce it and a due date for implementation. At no extra cost, I will setup your waste reduction plan in Trello for you to use a customized planner to help you implement your plan and assess and document progress.

Coaching Sessions

Through follow-up coaching sessions, we will assess your progress, celebrate your successes and make adjustments to your plan as needed.  The number of follow-up coaching sessions will vary based on your need and personal choice.  If you decide not to take advantage of our follow-up coaching sessions, we can provide you a custom Trello planner that you may use to assess your progress on your own or with a friend or family member.

Service Fees

Service fees vary depending on whether you take advantage of our waste inventory and ongoing coaching services.  After the initial consultation, you will receive an invoice for the agreed upon services and fees.  Below outlines the individual services and their fees from which you may choose.
