E2P2 Waste Reduction and Recycling Award Winner - Fjällräven Ann Arbor
The Environmental Excellence Partnership Program (E2P2) recognizes leaders in environmental protection. Annual awards are given for notable efforts in water quality protection, waste reduction and recycling, and pollution prevention. Award winners have gone above and beyond to do what is best for the environment
This year, Fjällräven Ann Arbor was awarded the Waste Reduction and Recycling Award for improving our environment through exemplary waste reduction and promoting reuse and recycling within our communities.
Fjällräven has been a member of Waste Knot and a Community Partner for Clean Streams since 2017. As an outdoor clothing and equipment company, Fjällräven is committed to making nature more accessible and acting responsibly towards nature, animals, and people along the way. Within their store, staff work to reduce and reuse as much as possible so that little waste is created. For example, the staff uses excess packaging to stuff backpacks and bags for display that are eventually sent for plastic bag recycling. All signs and most products are made out of recycled content.
In addition, Fjällräven is an annual sponsor of the Ann Arbor Commuter Challenge and regularly organizes a volunteer Earth Day event to pick up trash along the Huron River.
