Operational Initiatives

E.A. Sween strives to support environmental sustainability in its business operations:

Water

We installed automated handwashing stations in our production facility to reduce water usage by 240,000 gallons/year.

Recycling

Annually, we recycle more than 1.1 million pounds of corrugate and 6,000 pounds of paper in our production facility.

Waste

Our plant operations are working towards a 50% reduction in the amount of organic waste in our garbage. A new organic waste compactor diverts tonnage from landfills by converting.

Energy

We are transforming our office and production facility over to LED lighting and energy-efficient cooling/heating.

Efficiency

Ongoing replacement of low-efficiency equipment with new, high-efficiency equipment.

We are a proud sponsor of NMFA (National Military Family Association) with close to $1 Million contributed since 2006.
We are a lead sponsor of the Animal Humane Society.
We are a lead sponsor of the Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare.
We contributed more than $350,000 per year in food to Second Harvest Heartland (food shelf).
