Note-this is article is a marketing piece for a company. Environmental Waste Solutions (EWS) is a private U.S. small business headquartered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, which specializes in assisting businesses in becoming more environmentally friendly. The company can be seen as one approach to environmental consulting, a growing international industry specialized in aiding home owners and businesses in their adjustment to an increasingly green economy. Environmental consulting agencies like EWS also contend with issues such as the triple bottom line and sustainability. The companys business model can be looked at as an example of both eco-capitalism and upcycling – in the respect that EWS will assist businesses in listing unused materials in a material exchange program, to source those materials and create something new and more environmentally friendly than simply disposing of the material as "waste". Environmental Waste Solutions was founded in 1994 by Darwyn Williams.
