Reuseable Bags > Plastic Waste

At CI, we live the concept of Kaizen. Kaizen is the approach of continuous improvement & the notion that positive changes, no matter how large or small, can have a considerable impact. Kaizen reminds us that everything is a work in progress, and keeps us humble and eager to keep learning.

A small, but mighty change that we have made this year is utilizing reusable bags to deliver our string wire to job sites. We previously stacked string wire on a pallet and wrapped them with shrink wrap. This shipping method led to wires being damaged in transit, disorganization, and plastic waste that needed to be disposed of. With the introduction of reusable bags, we’ve eliminated shrink-wrap altogether. The bags sit atop wood pallets while maintaining organization and providing protection on their journey to the solar array. Once they’ve done their job safely delivering our string wire, they head back to our warehouse where they’ll begin their next journey. 

We will continue to find more environmentally friendly solutions in our day-to-day operations no matter how big or small.
