CJ Logistics America commemorates Earth Day 2024

CJ Logistics America is committed to proactively fulfilling our sustainability responsibilities. We pursue harmonious, sustainable growth with our customers, employees, partners, and local communities, focusing on opportunities to make a positive impact economically, socially, and environmentally

Earth Day 2024 falls on April 22 this year, and CJ Logistics America employees all over the country have been celebrating and recognizing the event in various ways.

Those at the company’s headquarters in Des Plaines, Illinois, participated in a cleanup event at Schiller Woods, a forest preserve located just a few miles from the office. This cleanup was organized by the Chicago nonprofit Clean Up – Give Back and gave all locally-based CJ Logistics employees the opportunity to team up and help beautify the surrounding neighborhood.

Additionally, Clean Up – Give Back runs an annual plastic bag drive where they accept more than 10,000 pounds of plastic bag donations. Many CJ Logistics employees participated this year and contributed to that effort, diverting these bags from landfills where they can instead be “upcycled” into composite decking and furniture products. Clean Up – Give Back will also be presenting at a company town hall event this week to share more about what they do and how everyone can work together to protect the environment.

And it wasn’t just employees from Illinois who celebrated Earth Day. Those in many of the company’s other distribution centers across the country, including California, Georgia, and Florida, participated in clean up events in their local communities as well.

The [logistics center] team has always gone above & beyond in ensuring our ability to service our customers comes first. The team has always far exceeded the expectations of partnership between our companies.
