Brazil - Factory Visit - 09 - Recycling at the Factory

During my trip, I also visited the recycling facility which plays a major role in bringing awareness to the manufacturers and the community in the region. This facility recycles the scraps and waste that is created during manufacturing by the footwear factories and other facilities. In the factory that produces Neuaura shoes, every work station has about 5 color coded trash bins. Each color indicates the type of trash to throw into that bin. The factory then organizes the waste accordingly and sends it to the recycling facility. The recycling facility sorts the waste by type. (They also check each bag to make sure the factory separated correctly. If they failed to do so they send it back to the factory to correct. When you see the images of this recycling facility, it is amazing how organized they are.)
