Sustain Charlotte is proud to announce that Charlotte-based company Wastequip, North America’s leading manufacturer of waste handling equipment, will serve as a platinum sponsor of the Charlotte Sustainability Awards from Sustain Charlotte.
Presented by Duke Energy, the Sustainability Awards aim to shine a spotlight on noteworthy achievements in sustainable innovation across the Charlotte region. For the past decade, the awards have recognized smart growth and sustainability leaders through an annual dinner, fundraiser, and networking event. Many attendees from nonprofits, businesses, and local governments come together for a night of celebration, networking, and inspiration.
This year's event will take place on Friday, April 22 (Earth Day) at The Extravaganza Depot on N. Tryon St.
All proceeds from these awards help us further our mission to inspire choices that lead to healthy, equitable, sustainable and vibrant communities across the Charlotte metro region for years and years to come. We are looking forward to a partnership with Wastequip, who shares in our commitment to sustainability and making a positive environmental impact. Below are a few reasons why we are excited to team up with Wastequip:
- Project25: In 2021, Wastequip’s Toter brand launched its Project25 initiative, driven by a commitment to reduce the amount of virgin resin used in its cart manufacturing by 25%. The goal will help reduce Toter’s carbon footprint by at least 9% per cart.
- EVR-Green: Exhibiting a commitment to environmental innovation, Toter recently introduced EVR-Green, which features the waste and recycling industry’s first cart body made from 100% recycled material.
- Supporting SB 1383 compliance: To help facilitate compliance with new industry standards such as California’s SB 1383, Wastequip brands Toter and ConFab are creating solutions such as carts, bins and collection containers that make it easier than ever to collect and transport organic materials.
- A CORE commitment: Wastequip’s CORE (COrporate REsponsibility) program formalizes the company’s commitment to preserving the planet for future generations, as well as to improving the lives of its employees and the communities it serves.
