Under contract for Canada’s National Zero Waste Council (NZWC), this 2015 publication series was prepared for the NZWC Product Design and Packaging Working Group.

The initial project culminated in two reports, Can I Compost That? Certification and Acceptance and Can I Compost That? A Materials Acceptance Guidean infographic package. The study results presented at a Metro Vancouver Sustainability Breakfast. This stream of research was picked up again in 2017 with a national stakeholder consultation on the state of compostables in Canada, culminating in the report Packaging and the Circular Economy: A Case Study on Compostables in Canada.
