WASHINGTON — A symbiotic relationship established between GOJO Industries and g2 revolution is serving up sustainable waste management benefits and social contributions, according to a press release.
GOJO and g2 revolution are collaborating to divert waste material from landfills, give second life to unused hand sanitizer and soap and provide meaningful employment for people with handicaps, the release stated.
"In our sustainable waste management efforts, our goal is to divert an additional 39 percent of our unused soap from our waste stream," said Sunshine Scherer, GOJO environmental manager.
"It is an ambitious goal but, by working with g2 revolution and others, we believe we can accomplish the goal within a year," Scherer added.
Billy Watterson, president and recycling innovations officer at g2 revolution, described his company''s sustainable waste management work with GOJO as a win-win-win proposition: "We collect unused soap from resources such as GOJO and extract valuable materials that we reblend into new products such as our floor soap, and our industrial vehicle and floor washes. We also purchase hand sanitizer that is unused to heat our buildings."
