End of Waste Foundation Supports the creation of a Circular Economy
The End of Waste Foundation is built on the vision of producing a circular economy within the recycling industry, eliminating waste and fostering a revolutionary paradigm of shared responsibility.
Through our Recycling Traceability System™ (RTS™) we track quantities of glass from bin to bottle, ensuring efficiency and accountability. At each stage of recycling, we’re creating the opportunity to divert glass from landfills and give it a new life.
Our system is powered by environmentally conscious businesses and consumers who contribute to the Proof of Recycling Program which subsidizes the efforts made by our waste and recycling enrolled partners to divert waste from landfills.
Contributing individuals and organizations receive the Glass Recycling Certificates or Sustainable Packaging Certificates that validates the amount of glass diverted from landfills and how much CO2 has been diverted from entering the atmosphere.

Driven by my passion and a vision to create a new, positive context for humanity, I envision a future where our activities sustain the environment and help reverse the effects of climate change. What fuels me? Knowing that my two kids and their peers will inherit this world.
