Environmental Purchasing and Waste Reduction

…reducing the impacts of the products we buy and supply.


Yellowstone has demonstrated a long commitment to waste reduction through composting and recycling efforts. We plan to minimize the overall amount of waste accumulated by purchasing environmentally preferred items. These include those with minimal packaging, biodegradable or recyclable materials, and without toxic components as well as those requiring minimal energy to produce and transport. By buying green and diverting waste from the landfill Yellowstone will minimize the impact of its purchases and waste on the environment.
