Creative Ways to Use the WasteWise Logo
How can you educate your employees about your company's involvement with WasteWise and get them excited to participate? Motivate employees and familiarize them with the WasteWise name by using the WasteWise logo in creative ways. Many partners find that hearing and seeing the WasteWise name increases employee participation in the program and helps partners reach their WasteWise goals. Some of the ideas for logo uses include:
Demonstrate your partnership with EPA by placing the logo on your environmental performance page or inserting a page dedicated to your WasteWise activities.
The logo plus a description of your WasteWise activities can enhance corporate reports or environmental performance reviews.
Demonstrates that your recycling program is part of a nationwide effort and adds a recognizable symbol to your system.
Shipping Boxes, Grocery Bags, or Other Packaging
This is a great way to show customers that your organization is a partner in WasteWise. (Remember, must be used with disclaimer.)
WasteWise Posters or Flyers
Customize a downloadable poster or flyer from the WasteWise website. Use it in your production area to remind employees how to prevent waste and recycle properly, or to list environmental facts showing the benefits of waste reduction.
Press Releases, Public Service Announcements, or Magazine Ads
