JAMAK Fabrication, Inc.
In 2006, an employee raised a concern about the health hazards and pollution issues related with Styrofoam. We found that we had purchased 32,000 Styrofoam cups in 2006 at a purchase cost of $1,960. We implemented a program beginning 2007 stating that if our employees wanted to drink beverages we provided, they had to provide their own container and be responsible for them.
We stopped providing Styrofoam cups. We reviewed our purchasing history to determine the quantity of cups used previously.
Details of Reductions
Additional Information :
We reduced our general trash and landfill costs. Most beneficial was the elimination of Styrofoam cups left setting around the facility with varying amounts of coffee or other beverages in them.
