Ask AAM: The 'Green Technology and Recycling' edition.
At the Alliance for American Manufacturing, we love to hear what's on the minds of our readers and supporters, and answer their questions when we can.
We recently received a question from a Facebook fan named Chris.
Many manufacturers have gone green to improve their public image and save money. Many automakers in America have made it known to their customers, but many manufacturers, like Okabashi shoes in Georgia, have advertised their recycling programs too. They claim that the programs save them enough money to stay profitable in America. In 2012 they nearly doubled their workforce. They have had success by making their product in America, guaranteeing them for 2 years, and recycling.
How much does green technology help American manufacturers? Are America's recycling facilities doing a satisfactory job in supplying materials to manufacturers?
AAM President Scott Paul responded to Chris's question in this video:
