Institute for Local Self-Reliance, Waste to Wealth Program

Since 1974, the Institute for Local Self Reliance's “Waste to Wealth” program has helped to convert wastes from environmental and economic liabilities into valuable resources that contribute to community development. Areas of focus include supporting the development of sustainable biomaterials to replace fossil-fuel-based plastics, developing green industrial parks, salvaging building materials through deconstruction, and promoting zero waste planning and recycling-based economic development (in place of waste incineration projects).
