The National Association for PET Container Resources and the Your Bottle Means Jobs campaign, in conjunction with the SC Dept. of Commerce hired me to create a video showing the process of what exactly happens to a PET bottle when it is recycled and just how many jobs are created when it happens! Besides the Youtube version of the video I created getting more than 29K views in the last year, I also just found out that it’s on NAPCOR’s very nice new website. Just check it out! Scroll to the bottom of the page til you see Your Bottle Means Jobs.
I also found out that the same video is being used in New Employee Orientations (NEO’s) for all staff onboarding with Orange County in NC.
“Orange County New Employee Orientation (NEO) provides a segment on recycling that was developed & is usually run by our Education & Outreach staffer…who inserted this video into her presentations to drive that recycling is an economic activity…
It is a great idea to have new employee orientation include a segment on recycling but we find it’s extremely rare.
The recycling segment is for all employees. One former HR director here said, ‘In 25 years of HR I’ve NEVER seen recycling on the agenda anywhere else in NEO’s”
So…I am a pretty happy camper!
