Model Sites offer "proof of concept" for Single-Use-Solutions following several years of planning together.

MODEL SITE 1
Over ten years ago, our company became the exclusive supplier of bottled water at the Longworth Cafeteria in Washington DC, as part of Speaker Pelosi’s “Green the Capital Initiative”. One of our Model Sites will once again be placed in Washington DC under the supervision of our long-time associate, Mr. Brian Funk. He will administer our “closed-loop” program in connection with both industrial composters and our Bottle Model Digester, to manage “end-of-life” for both food scraps and water bottles. The USDA’s BioPreferred program will, once again be playing an important part in placement.

MODEL SITE 2
A hotel in the South USA will be replacing their petroleum water bottles that are placed in every room with SUS bottles. A 3X5” card placed underneath each bottle will provide each guest with the information about how the bottle will be added to the Bottle Model Digester in the hotel restaurant and ground up to be added to the food scraps from that restaurant. In this case, the effluent will be drained into a tank outside the building to be utilized as irrigation for the hotel grounds. A plan for replication of this program has been devised to add five hotels each quarter, starting in 2021.

MODEL SITE 3
A city in the Western part of the USA will be the source for spring water to be bottled and distributed to “closed-loop” sites throughout the state. This state has the benefit of an extraordinary composter who has been working with SUS since 2010. His company will be picking up the food waste in each facility along with the ground—SUS bottles, caps, and labels. Another city in this area has been planning for zero-waste since 2016, but until now, did not have a supplier of compostable bottles. Several National Parks in this region are currently studying plans to adopt compostable water bottles as well.

MODEL SITE 4
A Midwestern state, is planning a statewide food and water project, where the intensive traditional fertilizer and pesticide chemicals used for the last half century have significantly damaged the underground water supply. The plan calls for the supply of bottled water in compostable packages of various sizes to offer clean water supplies where they are currently in short supply. Community Colleges throughout the state will bring the project to each area of the state to meet these critical needs.

MODEL SITE 6
An Island Nation very far from the USA will be receiving preforms, closures, and labels to fill at their local bottling company near the capital city of that country. This program has been in the planning stages for over two years, and will involve “closed-loop” sites throughout the country, including a large number of elementary schools. Experience Education, a non-profit educational corporation founded in 1969 by William Horner, will be providing “Learning Activities Packages” on the subject of composting to high schools and middle schools who will be carrying out activities in their science classrooms to see composting take place “first-hand” so they may better understand how SUS materials will be making a difference in their country.

MODEL SITE 7
A site in one of the largest cities on the East Coast will be a “return visit” for Single Use Solutions In August of 2018, this organization helped Single Use Solutions to trial a truckload of water bottles for their event. It was a big success, but Single Use Solutions had more work to do to refine the production of the product before returning to the event.

MODEL SITE 8
Most “sporting events” lend themselves to an excellent venue for plant bottles.  Food is usually associated with sports, so a model sight for ski resorts will not surprise anyone.  So long as there are bottle receptacles placed in strategic locations where it is easy to deposit them—both at the top of the slope and the bottom of the slope----there need not be a single bottle to be seen on the slopes.  Large collection bottles, holding 250-300 empties, will assure the operators and the skiers, that stray water bottles become a thing of the past.  Most skiers find that plant-based bottles that turn into water after use, make their whole recreational experience even better.  Starting in Utah, there will be a lot more sites just like this one.

MODEL SITE 9
One of the world’s most populated countries with high environmental goals will be undertaking several demonstration sites to show how SUS products can help them achieve some of their environmental objectives. This is a case where “world-class” experts who have distinguished themselves in pilot projects in this country already, will be managing this effort. Both water bottles and BMDs will be utilized to carry out those projects. Since it is an island nation there is a high probability that this project will seek to replace petroleum plastic bottles beyond water bottles.

MODEL SITE 10
The continent of Africa has taken some aggressive environmental steps over the last several years. We have been working with a company in the southern part of Africa since 2014 to create a model site in a capital city of one of those nations. An industrial composting operation, along with our Bottle Model Digesters, will be provided to demonstrate how to “leap forward” to a zero-waste city in the decade ahead. SUS will soon have a “working laboratory” for other countries to emulate.

MODEL SITE 11
It is important to SUS to offer its product line around the world. However, it is also important to be mindful of reducing the carbon footprint as much as possible. For that reason, preforms, caps, and labels are sent to bottlers overseas that will blow the bottles, fill and distribute them to locations near to their facility. This co-packer will be supplying water bottles to countries in the ASEAN region of the world. Long-time relationships have been important in the identification of such distant operations

MODEL SITE 12
Since 2018, SUS has had the benefit of working with Gerco Leeflang, in Amsterdam. His representation in Europe has been of great assistance in keeping SUS aware of the exciting developments taking place in Europe. He has identified co-packers and customers over SUS’s two year planning period, and will be implementing “closed-loop” projects with the plant bottles and the BMDs in model sites throughout multiple countries in Europe.
