A growing contingent of manufacturers is working to make products with packaging that won't end up in a landfill.
They'll have a workshop devoted to education and idea-swapping at this week's Zeroing in on Waste Reduction event in Asheville. Carolina Recycling Association hosts the annual conference and trade show, which will gather 700 exhibitors, businesses, speakers and participants.
Diane Davis is the executive director of the CRA. She said making products that limit waste can be cost-effective while being environmentally friendly.
