The Case for Waste Prevention: A Guide for Legal Professionals

“This guidebook—written by lawyers for lawyers—is concise, well-written, and full of creative ideas about waste prevention,” said a Seattle City Council member of this guide. “It is an excellent resource for the legal profession and anyone interested in waste prevention.”

Full Circle staff was retained by the Law Firm Waste Reduction Network, through funding from Seattle Public Utilities. Full Circle played a leadership role in designing the project, facilitated regular planning meetings of the Law Firm Waste Reduction Network, undertook background research, helped design and layout the guidebook, and wrote much of the content.

In a pre-internet age, the document was distributed widely to law firms throughout the region—along with a companion disk including sample documents and a paper-use-estimator spreadsheet.
