Waste Reduction  3"The Dictionary of Sustainable Management." Presidio School of Management. Retrieved 4/18/08
The process of reducing waste material and energy in manufacturing, use, and disposal by techniques such as dematerialization, transmaterialization, recycling, sustainable design, closed-loop supply chains, etc.

Watershed 2Introduction to Sustainability: Sustainable Dictionary "sustainable table" Retrieved 4/11/08
Area of land that contributes runoff to a particular, common body of water. (To understand this concept better, you can find a map of the watershed you live in by going to the EPA web site.)

WEEE Recycling Directive  3"The Dictionary of Sustainable Management." Presidio School of Management. Retrieved 4/18/08
EU legislation that sets criteria for the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment. It makes producers (manufacturers, sellers and resellers of own-brand equipment, and importers and exporters) responsible for financing most of these activities. This directive requires the collection and treatment of any electrical or electronic equipment which is waste including all components, sub-assemblies and consumables, which are part of the product at the end-of-the products life or at the time of discarding. In addition, it requires producers to organize “take back supply chain” for customers to return items when their use is finished. Every producer must also provide information on re-use and treatment for new EEE within one year of placing it onto the market, in order to inform re-use centers, treatment and recycling facilities. Due to the global economy, this directive has become a global standard.
