Recycling

Dirty Money, Earth Laundry

The U.S. generates nearly 300 million tons of residential and commercial municipal solid waste each year from households, restaurants, businesses, schools, and hospitals.

The first thing most of us learned as children about protecting the environment was reduce, reuse, recycle. Those enduring principles are particularly relevant for companies looking to reduce their environmental footprint and their costs. For companies that provide solutions to facilitate the three R’s, it is also an opportunity to generate profits.

Reduce – Waste is a meaningful contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. About 6% of greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste alone and an additional 3% come from wastewater and landfills. One of the best solutions to cutting back on waste is not producing it in the first place. Many consumer-packaged goods companies have cut back on the amount of packaging they’re using and opted for more sustainable materials where possible, as evidenced by the move away from plastic bags and straws. However, for waste that is unavoidable, waste management companies are finding ways to neutralize or destroy waste before it makes it to the landfill.
Reuse – Companies can also facilitate reuse, not only for consumer products, but also by rehabilitating or repurposing machinery that would have otherwise been decommissioned and left to the scrapyard.
Recycle – The U.S. generates nearly 300 million tons of residential and commercial municipal solid waste each year from households, restaurants, businesses, schools, and hospitals. Only about one-third is recycled or composted. Globally, only 16% of all plastic waste is recycled to make new plastics according to McKinsey. There is enormous scope to increase recycling of plastics, metals, and other consumer products and repurpose the output. Many companies have used recycled plastic or water bottles to create a range of products from household goods to apparel.
