Goal for improvement:

Better display of how and why we offer recycling drop off at our retail store.


Please describe what you will be doing internally to actively promote and display Wipe Out Waste Ambassador initiatives.

We already offer our retail store as a drop off for hard to recycle items and would gladly announce our partnership with Wipe Out Waste to further promote our mission to clean up our community. We are planning future store events and would love to have information/representative from Wipe Out Waste to attend our events to further inform our customers. We regularly promote on Facebook and Twitter and often send out informative emails to our customers, in those we would gladly share more information on Wipe Out Waste and your initiatives and current projects.


Please provide examples of your company's commitment to purchase "Green Products".

We actively look for companies who use recycled or biodegradable materials in their packaging and often don't purchase certain products due to the lack of environmental concern, as this is one of our main business objectives. We opted to not purchase a standard credit card printer because we use scrap paper to print receipts only when requested by customers. We use all green cleaning products for the store and make every effort to find a green alternative for every item we use.
