Tesla Recycling Bin Pen Cups

Tesla specializes in electric vehicles, energy storage and solar panel manufacturing. Their factory in Fremont is 5.5 million square feet, and they have managed to consistently divert over 99 percent of their waste from ending up in the landfill. They have a team of recycling technicians who service the factory, sorting materials and selling them to third party recyclers where needed.

They have earned a TRUE Zero Waste certification, and have recently become members of the U. S. Zero Waste Business Council. They now help others achieve TRUE certification and are committed to advancing zero waste values and policies.

These pen cups were designed to sit on desks and in meeting rooms at their factory to remind their staff about their efforts to ‘close the loop’ and to familiarize the team with the bins on the manufacturing floor. Through their efforts, they’re able to cut greenhouse gases, reduce pollution, reinvest locally, create jobs and add value to their organization and their community.

Organizations use merchandise all the time, for gifts, uniforms, marketing campaigns and more. Why not leverage yours to help drive your efforts to green your operations?
