Whirlpool Corp. announced a partnership with standardized labeling system How2Recycle, which gives consumers simplified instructions on how to best recycle product packaging materials.
"We are planning to make it even easier for our consumers to do the right thing the right way," Ron Voglewede, Whirlpool global sustainability director, said in a statement. "In the future, this partnership will allow us to inform homeowners on the best way to manage and eliminate waste while helping lower their impacts in their own communities."
According to a recent consumer survey conducted by How2Recycle, 50 percent of respondents reported changing their behavior based off what they learned from the packaging labeling system.
This new partnership with How2Recycle is part of Whirlpool Corporation's larger commitment to sustainability, including helping consumers in areas from energy efficiency to waste reduction. It has a zero waste to landfill goal in every manufacturing facility across the globe by 2022.
