A circular economy

Our solution

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 Certificate that validates the amount of glass saved from landfills and how much CO2 has been diverted from entering the atmosphere.

How it works
.
Trace

Our Recycling Traceability System™ (RTS™) tracks quantities of glass through each stage of the recycling process.

Each month, our waste and recycling partners report and validate how much glass is moving through the system.

This validation ensures a certain quantity of glass is being diverted from landfill, recycled and turned into new products.

.
Contribute

Once a traceability chain has been completed and validated, quantities of recycled glass are made available in the End of Waste Foundation Marketplace.

Consumer Product Goods Companies looking to offset their carbon footprint and become more sustainable can purchase Sustainable Packaging Certificates.

Each ton of recycled glass is valued at $70. Up to $45.5 are distributed back to the recycling companies and help divert more glass from landfills.

.
Certify

Sustainable Packaging Certificates are issued for businesses who contributed and are an easy and verifiable way to offset CO2 footprint and prove recycling is taking place.

Certificates verify the source of glass, how much glass has avoided landfills and how much CO2 has been saved from the atmosphere.

Verification of glass recycling creates powerful marketing opportunities and a truly circular economy. Investments help create long term benefits via infrastructure, research & development and education.

Testimonials

Paul Dolan, CEO - Truett Hurst Winery
Paul DolanCEO, Truett Hurst Winery

For me, joining the End of Waste Foundation Proof of Recycling Program was about the opportunity to be able to contribute to a leadership model. Whenever an entrepreneur is starting a new project that has great value, it’s not always so easy to get people enrolled in it because it’s new, and we’re resistant to change. But when you can put it inside of the context of the importance of the contribution it makes to society, as a result of the contribution that it makes to the environment, it becomes an easy decision inside of a company that’s really committed to those sorts of things.

We are proud to partner with the End of Waste Foundation to create more transparent and effective recycling systems. Ripple Glass recycles glass from Kansas City and over 100 communities throughout the Midwest. We have increased the glass recycling rate in Kansas City from 3% to 20%, but in recent years, that recycling rate has stagnated.
