Read the full story at Waste360.

As part of Austin’s goal to reach zero waste as a community by 2040, the city has developed a social innovation program to help turn valuable raw materials that are currently leaving local businesses, nonprofits and institutions as waste into the foundation of new social enterprises.

Named the [Re]Verse Pitch Competition and launched in 2015, this competition gives local businesses and institutions the chance to partner with entrepreneurs to develop innovative reuse solutions for their byproducts. Going into its third effort in 2018, [Re]Verse Pitch has received the Gold Excellence in Economic Development Award from the International Economic Development Council (IEDC).
