Manufacturing companies should ad positions for engineers to create packaging or manufacturing processes that reduce waste.
When Robin mentioned that our typical residential garbage only accounts for 3% of our waste it made me question why. I always see and hear about people pushing for people reducing waste in their homes when it sounds like the real problem is in manufacturing. I am surprised that companies do not make a big deal out of reducing waste from manufacturing because usually reduced waste can mean larger profits. I was for a while an engineering major in college and one of the majors was engineering for sustainability. Why is there not a surge in these positions at large manufacturing companies?
