Summer is upon us! As we all spend more time outdoors, we often think about how our actions affect the environment now and into the future. But it may surprise you how many of our manufacturing guests CONSTANTLY have sustainability and environmental impact on their minds.


This "Best of" episode highlights just some of the manufacturers we have spoken to about their initiatives that make an impact on the world around us.


We chose companies that talk about their sustainable products or services; the ways they have improved their processes to reduce environmental impact; and a few companies who have been developing a sustainable and environmentally responsible business in all areas.


I hope you are inspired by this episode to think about the impact your business is making on the environment and to look into ways to reduce that impact now and into the future.
