Green 101, Dumpster Dive lead to greener bottom line

eco-friendly workshop

Many Iowa businesses are looking for opportunities to make their processes more eco-friendly while improving their bottom line. That’s why CIRAS now offers two fast-paced workshops that combine classroom-style learning with interactive “live” simulations: Green 101—Green Generalist Training; and Dumpster Dive—Materials Use and Solid Waste Management. Training is available at public workshops; companies also may schedule training at their location.

Seminar participant Marty Fox, president of Decker Manufacturing, said the seminars were a great tool for implementing green practices. “We learned how to use materials more efficiently and how to reduce our amount of waste,” Fox said.
