We are looking for PET recycling companies near Oklahoma City and Atlanta. We have access to post-industrial scrap and would like to get it into the circular recycling stream.

Jasmine,  As you know Sustainability is very much site specific so it's hard for me to give you direct answer.  Like Hey change all your light bulbs to LED but if Fordham hasn't done that yet it would be a place to start. ;-)  I think the real power of campuses is the students.  So I would try to do a survey to see what students would be most invested in and then start to work on that list.  If students want the change they will be motivated to help you and it will more easily be able to be pitched to the powers that be to make change because it's what the students want.  It also matters where you/Fordham is at in their sustainability Journey.  If you want to bounce ideas or actually want to set up a time to talk I'd be happy to do so.  Hope that helps.  Cheers

There are two main standards for water footprinting (very similar). https://waterfootprint.org/en/ and https://www.iso.org/standard/43263.html  I recommend the first one by the Water Footprint Network.  Both define concepts of blue, green, and grey water; and both provide approaches for calculating the footprint of a specific product or entire business.  The Water Footprint Network has more resources and case studies, in my opinion.  Keep in mind that water use (even "a lot") is not necessarily a negative - life, business, nature requires water.  Unlike carbon footprints where less or zero footprint is better, water footprints are a starting point for understanding when, where, and how water us used across your value chain. Sometimes less water or less pollution is indeed needed but often use is only defined in the context of water supplies in a given area.

Hi Gabriella, 

Nice to e-meet you. I am a Co-Founder at TOMbag - an Australian social enterprise on a mission to rid the world of single-use garbage bags with our sustainable and reusable solution. We've created the world's first reusable garbage bag that was designed with circularity in mind. Made from certified recycled plastic (rPET), it's highly durable, washable and 100% waterproof. As you've mentioned tourism I thought to reach out - there are a number of global accommodation providers/hotels that are trialling out our reusable solution. Let me know if you want me to provide you with more details.

More about us here: www.tombag.com.au

Thanks.

Hi Sandeep,

Thank you for your answer. We use glass bottles, so as I understand, cellulose labels wouldn't affect to the recycling cycle.

Thanks a lot! I will contact them.

Best regards,

Raul A.
