We at Great Western Transportation would like to share with you a news article on the Logistics View website about the Greenpeace organization finding that a common textile supplier of Adidas, Nike, Abercrombie & Fitch, Calvin Klein, Converse, H&M, Lacoste, and Puma has been found to be dumping toxic waste into local rivers in China. The Greenpeace organization has been pressuring these companies to stop using the supplier. It’s a very common type of story in regards to getting the bigger companies who are more susceptible to negative press to pressure their suppliers to become green and environmentally responsible.
We handle the transportation needs of customers who are in some way attached to a supplier either because they are a supplier to another company or they have a lot of suppliers to themselves. Suppliers frequently end up moving overseas to cut costs in labor and to avoid having to follow regulations that are set by the US government to prevent waste dumping like in the article. The debate that rises is if the government should reduce environmental regulations to keep businesses in the US or to increase them in favor of the environment.
We at Great Western Transportation like to keep you up to date on any interesting news and events in hopes you keep us in mind for any future shipments. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-972-8484.
