Recently, many companies have opened their doors to competitors in an effort to solve some of the world's more pressing social and environmental issues, share advancements and collaborate towards lasting solutions as an industry. Now, one company is taking the spirit of knowledge-sharing and cooperation one step further, applying sustainability innovation techniques to a public/private partnership in an effort to preserve some of the nation's most prized natural landmarks.

Earlier this year, Subaru celebrated ten years of manufacturing cars in its zero-landfill plant. Yet, instead of resting on its laurels, Subaru realized it could apply the knowledge and skills learned from the process to another problem – the 100 million pounds of trash generated from 273 million visitors at America's National Parks each year. Building upon its existing multi-year partnership with the National Park Foundation, Subaru has partnered with the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) to pilot zero-landfill practices at three test sites – Yosemite, Grand Teton and Denali National Parks.
