“45 Specific Facts on How Companies are Achieving Sustainability”

Using the above title, create a list of 45 facts regarding companies’ efforts to achieve sustainability and reducing waste. You are to select nine (9) different companies. Use the Internet to find and write a minimum of five (5) facts about the methods used to cut waste and reduce environmental impact for each of the nine companies. The items are to be numbered 1 to 45. The website(s) from which you found your information is to be included as shown in the EXAMPLE below. The company name is to be present in each statement.

The Twitter Challenge – 140 characters maximum. As we live in a social media world and Twitter is being used more for business marketing, each statement is not to exceed 140 characters. For this assignment, spacing and punctuation will count as characters. The 140 characters is the old Twitter standard and for this assignment we will use the old standard. Items with more than 140 characters will not be counted as part of the student’s acceptable total. PAY ATTENTION TO THE CHARACTER COUNT.
