Procter & Gamble’s first zero-waste plant in the United States opens
Procter & Gamble are hell bent on turning into a zero-waste company, and in an effort to do so, have finally pulled the veil off its first zero-waste-to-landfill manufacturing plant located in Auburn, Maine, North America. All the waste created by the company will be reused. 60% of the waste will be sent for recycling while the rest of the waste will be used to generate electricity. Currently the company has had eight zero-waste facilities in places like Belgium, Italy, U.K. and Hungary. The plant in Maine is the first of Procter & Gamble’s zero-waste facilities in the United States. The company also plans to use 100% recyclable material while manufacturing and have 100% renewable energy juicing it up. Procter & Gamble sure deserve a pat on the back for these green initiatives.
