There are many ways in which we can all help to protect and keep the planet and environment clean. We all have to share this earth with one another, so it’s important that we all pitch in to help. We have all heard of several ways in which we can do our part such as recycling, reducing our waste and driving less. Jayco also wants to do their part to help the planet, and so they have launched a long-term sustainability initiative program.

Jayco’s sustainability program is called EcoAdvantage, and it is their way of insuring that their products and processes have a minimal negative impact on the environment. The program is focused on better ways of building better RV’s that use fewer natural resources. There are seven goals that Jayco has set forth to achieve through their initiative.

1. Landfill free by 2015 – Jayco has moved recycling bins around, educated their employees and worked with their suppliers to help reduce packaging.
2. Reduce freshwater use – Jayco plans to use water runoff for their operations. Their goal is to use rainwater in three of their major production facilities by the spring of 2013.
3. Use more sustainable materials – Materials will be re-used, packaging improved and plans with suppliers will be made for the use of more sustainable parts.
4. Use less energy – Jayco has a goal of using 40% less energy by 2014 by upgrading facilities and production processes.
5. Promote Green Efforts – Try to involve RV owners, suppliers and competitors in the process of improving the environment.
6. Streamline – Jayco will streamline their processes to help reduce energy use, increase efficiency and limit waste.
7. Reduce Product Weight – Jayco has committed to reducing the weight of their products to help their customers achieve better fuel efficiency in turn leaving less of a footprint on the planet.
