RR Conference 2013: An update on product stewardship

Product stewardship is a strategy to transform our current waste management system to limit growing environmental, social and economic externalities. By engaging manufacturers in taking on greater financial and managerial responsibility for the environmental and social impacts of products throughout their lifecycle, product stewardship aims to increase recycling, increase efficiency, and incentivize more sustainable product manufacture. The Product Stewardship Institute has organized an informative panel which will review different models of product stewardship programs across the country for three products that can be difficult to manage, including carpet, mattresses and paint.
