3R Competition Promotes Recycling and Upcycling Materials

The Recover, Recycle, Reuse SD Team challenged Covia employees to create a usable or decorative item made only from recycled or upcycled materials found at their facility. Thirty-one facilities contributed submissions. The objective was to increase awareness about the importance of recycling and reusing materials to minimize our environmental footprint and preserve natural resources.

Voting took place to determine Most Resourceful, Most Creative, and Favorite. The items were available to bid on, with all proceeds from the online auction going to charities. Employees at the facility that created each item decided which charitable organization their dollars went toward.
