Bigelow Tea's Louisville Plant Nears Zero-Waste-to-Landfill
Since December of 2008, the Bigelow Tea Company's Louisville plant has worked diligently to improve its manufacturing process and daily operations to reach zero-waste-to-landfill status. A dedicated Green Team (which includes members from departments throughout the facility), has led the plant to success.
The Louisville plant now diverts 97.8% of its waste materials through composting and recycling.
