In the tradition of freecycling, NYC-based WasteMatch offers companies the ability to post their waste to a website, in case some other company has a use for, say, hundreds of cardboard boxes.  The idea is to save on waste-disposal fees — thus the slogan, “Out of your dumpster, onto your bottom line.”

Just one of many great environmentally friendly ideas that offer a genuine service, make a profit, and require no government intervention.
