create a better Legacy.
The first step towards change is awareness.

“One of the ways a landfill engineer anywhere in the world earns bragging rights is if he can pour himself a glass of the leachate from his landfill and drink it.” Jeanne Marie Laskas
Landfill is not inevitable and by designing out waste, understanding its root causes and re-engineering current processes and practices, you can alleviate its generation. At every stage of a project, waste reduction strategies also bring financial benefits for all stakeholders.
