Finding a product solution that is a win for the environment, consumers and business is challenging. Green waste recycling is an example of one solution, offering the opportunity to divert waste from landfills by incorporating it into beneficial new products. Our Company continues leading in utilizing green waste, incorporating 5 billion pounds annually of woody and green biomass into our products. Procurement, R&D, sales and operations teams also work together to find food waste--such as coffee, fruit and potatoes--that meets stringent criteria for inclusion in our products.
