SEWS Partners with Local Schools

Hello, I am Alyssa Holster, an intern with the General Affairs Department at Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems, Inc. (SEWS), located in United States. I’d like to tell you about the Earth Day events my company has been participating in!

Three SEWS’ facilities teamed up with local schools to teach children about the importance of Earth Day. We maintain an environmental policy to reduce, reuse, and recycle waste and to improve the efficiency of energy usage, and believe that is very important to pass down these values to future generations.

We asked local schools in Edmonton, Scottsville, and Bowling Green, Kentucky to show off their creative skills while raising awareness about the importance of protecting our environment. Over 2,500 children participated from North Metcalfe Elementary School, Edmonton Elementary School, Summer Shade Elementary School, Allen County Primary School, and Jody Richards Elementary School. The students were asked to either create a poster or write an essay about “What Earth Day Means to Me”. First place winners received a $100 savings bond and tree seedling. Students demonstrated their knowledge and maintained that not littering, picking up trash, and recycling are some of the best ways to help protect our environment.

Our facilities have continued to implement environmental efforts in a myriad of other ways as well. Our Edmonton facility has managed to recycle isopropyl alcohol in a way that allows them to reuse 80% of it instead of sending it out as waste. Our facility in Bowling Green has been working with another school, Warren Elementary, to recycle our used toners and inkjet cartridges. The school is able to recycle our used products and receive money to support their Student Technology Leadership Program.

SEWS is proud to share the knowledge about recycling, sustainability and supporting our local schools!
