Corporate Responsibility Highlights

Shrink our environmental footprint while we grow.

  • All Glad facilities worldwide achieved zero-waste-to-landfill status, including R&D and distribution facilities in the U.S. and plants in the U.S., Canada and China.
  • To engage employees in taking personal ownership of sustainability in their workplace, we relaunched our voluntary employee Eco Warriors group with an innovation contest in January and a site-focused Earth Month challenge. The Eco Warriors also partnered with our Brita brand to engage 43 of our facilities in the U.S. and Latin America in eliminating single-use plastic bottles.
  • We moved part of our supply chain for the Clorox ToiletWand® system from Mexico to the U.S. to partner with a supplier that could design and invest in automation that increases our capacity while reducing overall lead times and inventory. This improves our ability to respond more quickly to changing customer demands. The move also created 120 jobs in the U.S., reduced transportation costs and lowered our transportation carbon footprint by over 735,000 miles annually.
