From Trash to Treasure – Changing Plastic to Change the World

Genecis Bioindustries

The potential of plastic production at Genecis Bioindustries Inc. is astounding. The company is creating high-value plastics from food waste that compete in function with oil-based plastics, but are environmentally friendly, composted within a month, and degraded in a year. Genecis is building a circular economy by helping businesses use green PHA plastics in agriculture, packaging, and food services, and reducing the amount of plastic – approximately 18 billion pounds of it – that ends up in oceans every year.

Why They Call It The Blues

Recycling Realities in a Throwaway Society

Reduce, reuse, recycle: We’ve all heard the slogan, and most of us try our best to adhere to the principles of buying less, adopting green initiatives when possible and carefully loading up the recycling bin for weekly collection. But after the Blue Box is emptied and the truck drives away, what do we really know about the ensuing process?

Wanting to help stop climate change, mitigate waste in landfills and eliminate ocean pollution isn’t as clear cut as we might think, because the recycling industry is a lot less about saving the environment and a lot more about economics.

An Ounce of Prevention

Data Driven Workplace Welfare

While no one plans to get physically injured or exposed to dangerous working situations at their place of employment, getting hurt on the job is, unfortunately, a common occurrence. 2.8 million non-fatal workplace injuries were reported in 2019, as well as 888,220 nonfatal injuries and illnesses causing a private industry worker to miss at least one day of work, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Preventing these types of injuries along with time missed — in fact, making a workplace as safe as possible — is imperative for all organizations. Unfortunately, the best of intentions don’t always lead to the best results.
