Craig Butler, director of the Ohio EPA said things like composting cafeteria waste, changing light and water fixtures benefits the company as well as the environment.
Marathon vice president of environmental health safety and security John Swearingen said last year alone employees at the Findlay office recycled over 100 tons of paper, plastics and aluminum cans and also eliminated the use of 400,000 styrofoam cups by implementing a reusable coffee mug program.
Because of this, Marathon was awarded the Ohio EPA’s E3 silver level environmental stewardship recognition.
Swearingen said there is still room for improvement and Marathon is hoping to move up to the gold level soon.
