Make the Downturn Work for You
written on February 26, 2009 by Ginni Garner
Employee Development

THE NUMBERS ARE STAGGERING: 5,000 jobs lost here, 10,000 jobs lost there, recently over 60,000 in a single day. Chances are that your company or institution either needs to reduce head-count or has done so already. This is not the first – nor will it be the last – time that organizations have gone through massive downsizings. Previous recessions in 1980-82, 1990-91 and 2001-2003 all led to periods of significant unemployment, as companies struggled to bring staffing costs in line with revenues.

Waste Reduction, Recycling and Composting

 

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo made some major green by recycling.  In 2008, the zoo generated $12,860 by recycling more than 140 tons of materials ranging from cell phones to phonebooks.  Recycled materials included cardboard, paper, aluminum cans and all other metals, plastics numbered 1 and 2 and #4 shrink wrap, fluorescent bulbs, electronic waste, including toner cartridges, batteries, tires, and of course, animal wastes.  In 2008, the zoo also started using a solar-powered golf cart to carry materials and instituted a policy to greatly reduce vehicle traffic inside the zoo.
