Each year, Earth Day – April 22 – marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. MERA – The Association for Sustainable Manufacturing – and its members are set to celebrate Earth Day 2018. This year’s theme is “End Plastic Pollution.”
MERA member companies will take part in the world’s largest environmental movement by hosting Earth Day activities and sharing stories of their environmental stewardship. They will actively engage with their communities, customers and employees to share the benefits of “manufacturing with reuse.”
“We are proud to be part of the Earth Day Network,” said MERA President and Chief Operating Officer John Chalifoux. “Our members are leaders in the circular economy, and they live the spirit of Earth Day every day. By participating in Earth Day 2018, they will highlight the corporate social responsibility of remanufacturing and similar forms of sustainable manufacturing.”
“At MERA, with our commitment to sustainable manufacturing, we are stewards of the environment,” said MERA Director Russ Schinzing, who also serves as president of Electronics Remanufacturing Co. “ERC and other member companies will demonstrate this commitment by hosting a variety of educational and fun activities around Earth Day.”
