Retail

There are few things shoppers love more than savings. That means a good sale, a hot bargain, and—yes—the opportunity to help save the environment.

Fast Facts

It’s in the bag

Retailers know that the engines of commerce are powered in part by a lot of cardboard, plastic, and other materials. But that fuel doesn’t need to be discarded—if it’s handled properly, it can be recycled again and again. Smart waste management systems can help retailers develop opportunities for recycling and conservation at every step of the supply chain. Sustainable operations help you consolidate your billing, protect the environment, and develop a deeper relationship with your customers.

  • Recycling cardboard requires just 75% of the energy needed to make new cardboard
  • Shoppers worldwide use approximately 500 billion single-use plastic bags annually
  • Every year, U.S. businesses dump $38 billion worth of recyclables in landfills
