Salinas Valley Recycles works in collaboration with Measure To Improve to implement comprehensive recycling programs for local ag-related businesses Our partnership with MTI has allowed our agency and local businesses to benefit from MTI’s expertise in recycling and waste management programs but also in working towards over-all sustainability and zero waste as a real possibility in the ag community.
Mandy Brooks, SVR Recycling Coordinator
Measure to Improve has helped Greener Fields Together take a more innovative approach to waste reduction. Prior to working with Measure to Improve, we were simply measuring the sustainability efforts in our supplier network. Now, with the direction and services of Measure to Improve, we are able to offer our suppliers a comprehensive waste reduction program complete with resources and templates that will facilitate continuous improvement at the supplier level. Nikki (Rodoni) Cossio and the Measure to Improve team have been wonderful to work with, and they take a proactive approach to accomplishing our shared goals. I would recommend Measure to Improve to anyone who is looking for a dedicated team of incredibly knowledgeable sustainability professionals with many years in the agriculture industry.
