Promoting Kaitiakitanga by reducing waste
The EcoStar program supports Northland businesses to achieve their sustainability goals by working towards minimising waste. We believe that waste minimisation is a fundamental positive climate action which is measurable and achievable.
The first step is to do a full waste evaluation of your business. This includes having a look at your current system as well as having a free waste assessment of your waste.
Once systems are embedded, a second waste evaluation, together with waste minimisation strategies are used to assess your award. This evaluation also serves as a stepping stone for developing further strategies for improvement. A Bronze, Silver or Gold rating is attained.
Once a business is awarded an EcoStar award, they are asked to keep records of the business’s waste stream for twelve months. This record verifies that they continue to meet the criteria and gives a clear picture of how we can help.
All you need to do is contact us in the form below and we will book you in for a free waste evaluation.
Hygiene Direct Testimonial
"We have always been mindful of the waste we put out into our community (to our customers). We wanted to practice what we preached and partnering with Eco Solutions to work towards a Gold Eco Star for waste minimization inhouse was a great way for us to go about it. Anouk and the team were able to encourage us in areas where we were doing well and guide us through implementing some practices where we could improve. We are very happy with the systems we have been able to implement, and we are very proud to have been the first to receive this award in Northland."
