Getting Ready For Another WASTE AUDIT
Jackman's eco goal is simple... MAKE LESS GARBAGE! Yep, we’re
learning to be more mindful about the garbage we create. It takes a little thought, a little
planning, a little effort. But
it's worth it.
And soon, we will put our
garbage goal to the test. We will conduct another waste audit.
We will save a whole day's worth of
Jackman's garbage. Then the eco team will conduct a thorough
investigation to see exactly what’s in there. It's a messy job, but
someone's got to do it. We will sort it, count it, measure it, and discuss
it. Then we use this data to make plans for further waste reduction.
Look at our data from the last few years...
As you can see, we are
making less garbage overall.What will
2018 bring? Are we making less garbage at Jackman? We hope so. And soon we'll know the answer.
