iStock 000005186448smallReducing the solid waste produced in every day operations is a number one priority at Stryker. Styrofoam trays are made of polystyrene, a petroleum-based product which stays around for centuries, taking up lots of landfill space. Furthermore, solid waste adds a significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. For these reasons, last fall, Stryker made the switch to biodegradable clam shells made from bagasse and corn-based plastic. These trays can be composted (they biodegrade in 30-90 days) and turned into soil again, completing the biological cycle with virtually no waste!
