Sustainable Manufacturing can mean different to different industries but essentially it comprises the following elements: reducing waste generated from the manufacturing process, recycling, using low cost clean energy, converting waste streams to revenue streams and taking responsibility of the product throughout its lifecycle. It essentially means doing more with less. Six basic steps have been identified for achieving sustainable manufacturing: Eliminations of waste, optimal use of fossil fuels, reduce or eliminate pollution, recycle, recovering energy and lastly saving time and machinery to do a piece of work. Sustainability in manufacturing is being increasingly recognized as an important concern. To quantify environmental impact in manufacturing
Third it saves up energy, recycling also saves energy and natural resources through conservation. Fourth, of course recycling also helps to sustain our environment for future generation. If we or all people conserve and recycle all possible materials in their household or community destruction or pollution in the environment can be avoided. Fifth, the last but not the least it reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and combustion facilities. If we recycle the waste materials we can reduce the things that gets burn and can reduce, not only reduce but possible that we also
As Go Green is a natural phenomenon of today’s lifestyle for the betterment of self as well as environment for that purpose advertisers are concerning more on green advertising. Green Advertising is a marketing of a product that is presumed to be environmentally preferable to others and include many activities of companies which needed to spread information about the producer like product modification, changes in the production process, sustainable packaging of the product which must show its effect for the purpose of environment protection. Green advertising must be “ecological” “environmental” and “sustainable” for the last longing development as consumers are now more concentrated on the products which are eco friendly and safe for environment. Jacquelyn Ottman , one of the founding experts of the green marketing movement, proposes that, if a business’s green marketing strategy is to be effective and sustainable, environmental concerns should be vertically integrated into all aspects of marketing, from new product development to communications strategies .Green advertising develops and involve in prompting those products and services that satisfy
Green buildings, also knows as green construction or sustainable building refers to a structure that is environmental friendly, environmental responsible and resource efficient throughout the buildings whole life cycle. This includes the process of citing, design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and demolition. In simpler terms green building design involves finding the balance between homebuilding as well as sustaining the environment. Green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the environment on human health, including the natural environment, by efficiently using energy, water and other natural resources in order to protect occupant health and improve employee production all while reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation. Green buildings have a very positive effect on the environment and on the economy when compared to regular non-environmental friendly buildings.
Upcycling basically is a wise way to minimize the disposal of waste in terms of creative and innovative by reinventing it to produce something entirely new product from the old item that is no longer needed or wanted by giving it a new lease of life with better high quality and better than new. In the short word, upcycled is a process to transform a waste to the new quality product (Neoh, 2012). The term upcycle first appeared in the mid 1990’s. According to book ‘Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things’ by William McDonough and Michael Braungart (North Point Press: 2002), they state that the goal of upcycling is to prevent wasting potentially useful materials by making use of existing ones. The purpose of practice is to preserve
This recycled wastes materials that enters disposal sites are providing the needed raw materials for industries. Affirming the recycling method is the best, effective and efficient method of managing solid waste according to the industries. Recycled waste materials will be converted from a useless material into valuable resources, capable of generating employment and bringing in economic returns. Recycling can conserve natural resources and yields environmental, financial and social returns, it conserved energy, prevention of pollution and the expansion of economic. More importantly that a small amount of, what is to be dispose contains raw valuable resources.
A robust and united community can be chipped in by a strong community green projects and programs. One of the green projects implemented by the local community is recycling. Recycling is the practice of reusing items that would be thrown away. The benefits of this on the community are reduction of the size of landfills, conservation of natural resources, more employment opportunities, cash benefits offers, money saving, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, energy saving and stimulation of the use of greener technologies (Rinkesh, 2009). Recycling projects can bring different groups and communities togetherand prevent loss of biodiversity.This research discusses the ways to reduce and lessen the use of plastic bottles.
Culture strongly influences what people eat, wear and travel. 2.2.3 Environmental changes in consumers buyer behavior As packaging progressed so did the need to do smart packaging, today one of the largest shifts in culture that affects packaging is the desire for more environmentally friendly packaging. Consumer today are willing to even pay more for products that are environmentally friendly or made from recyclable materials. According to Mostafa (2007), green purchase behavior refers to the way consumers are more concerned with purchasing products that are friendly to the environment, recyclable or responsive to ecological concerns. Clem (2008) explains that the trend of “going green” reflects a social consciousness around saving and protecting the Earth’s natural resources.
United Nations often considers sustainable consumption and production together as “a holistic approach to minimizing the negative environmental impacts from consumption and production systems while promoting quality of life for all” (Young, William, 2010). In order to achieve sustainable consumption, two developments have to take place: it requires both an increase in the efficiency of consumption and reductions in consumption levels. Taking into consideration those two approaches to sustainable consumption, it is evident that individual consumers play a key role. These developments can help move an individual’s consumption in the direction of sustainable practices, include: Repair and maintain products to extend the useful life. Reuse of
