I have a new product that can be made out of wood, i would like to know if it is economically feasible to manufacture this product. The new product is definitely environmentally feasible, because i would be diverting C+D waste therefore reducing the Carbon footprint. i would like some guidance to weather i am getting the message off in my business plan and maybe some help with marketing. I know I am requesting a lot, I really believe that one person can make a difference. Addiction/alcoholism is running rampid in our City around the province, country and globally. Addiction is not a social disease it does not discriminate, it does not matter if you have a lot of money or no money at all, it does not matter if you are male or female, religious or not religious, it does not matter what race you or how much education you have or if you are young or old. The majority of the people that are incarcerated are there due to a drugs or alcohol related crimes. There are many programs out there like AA, NA, GA, Co-DA and others. When individuals’ that are released from jail, detox and recovery house or other institutions are genuinely afraid of the “big world out there”. I would like to give people hope and a job and also work with Corrections Canada. I would also like to have connections with other treatment facilities and social outreach programs. According to Dovetail industries’ (http://www.dovetailinc.org/) study on recycling waste in Canada and the USA; an estimated 70,000,000.00 tons of wood is in the annual municipal solid waste and construction and demolition waste streams. According to this study an estimated 30,000,000.00 tons of wood is available for recovery. This study was done in 2012. Deconstruction is environmentally friendly and reduces greenhouse gases overall reduces materials to landfill and increase materials to recycle facilities, exposes the possibility of any unforeseen hazardous waste, increases jobs, promotes a positive image for our region, educates the public for the future so we can find the knowledge to recycle all materials correctly.
