Qurate Retail Aims to Eliminate Single-Use Plastics at Corporate Offices
December 4, 2020: As part of our corporate sustainability goals, Qurate Retail Group is working to eliminate single-use plastics at our corporate offices by the end of 2021. To meet this goal, we have teamed up with Fill it Forward, a certified B corporation focused on sustainability and providing clean water, to encourage team members to avoid single-use plastic water bottles.
We offered our team members a ‘virtual sticker’ to scan each time they fill a reusable water bottle – with each scan representing a single-use plastic water bottle that wasn’t used. Within seven days, our team members reached our “scan” goal of 1,000 scans, and they now have more than 5,300 scans.
Qurate Retail Group is also making a donation to Fill It Forward to help fund a clean water well and pump system for over 200 people in Tigray, Ethiopia.
