  12. 12. •  When putting together your presentation for our event, we would like you to keep in mind that we are looking for you to talk about a specific example of how your company identified a waste source, strategized to minimize this waste source, and how you reduced it. Try to think of it as telling a story rather than a broad summary of Avedas efforts.•  When tackling a specific waste stream – how do you decide which one? How do you prioritize your waste (or more broadly,sustainability) challenges?•  How does the magnitude of waste reduction when working downstream with consumers compare with waste reduction effortsmade within your facility?•  Are there challenges specific to an external initiative – working downstream with consumers – that are different from working internally? (e.g. more education, outreach)•  What strategies have you used to draw in customers and involve them in Aveda’s waste reduction efforts?
