Congrats to Vickerey, our Zero Waste Business of the Month!
Congratulations to Boulder-based Vickerey, maker of men’s and women’s fashion and yoga clothing, on their outstanding efforts toward Zero Waste! Vickerey has been working with Eco-Cycle for many years to reduce the amount of material they send to the landfill. On a consistent basis, they recycle almost seven tons of material annually and compost nearly 600 pounds!
In addition to their single-stream recycling (bottles, cans, paper, etc.), Vickerey recycles their plastic film, something we consider a “hard-to-recycle” material because it must collected and marketed separately from single-stream materials. Since 2012, Vickerey has collected almost 700 pounds of the material, which has been recycled ingto composite decking by Trex.
Congrats to Vickerey, and thanks for your great efforts!!
