For fans of protecting the environment, composting organic waste and foodstuff should be common practice. Both inexpensive and convenient, composting can significantly reduce local disposal costs while enriching the soil for future food growth. Composting is a win-win situation for environmentalists and city dumps. For those unaware of the benefits of composting, let’s explore four key reasons many are doing it.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in a continued effort to educate businesses and food entrepreneurs on proper food disposal, have established a food recovery hierarchy. The agency explains that although normal food disposal routines may reduce leftover waste, plenty of inedible components remain that cannot be reduced without proper composting.
Corporations, unfortunately, aren’t inclined to give without incentivization. Even necessities, such as food, are often disposed of rather than donated to nonprofit organizations. In recent years, unfavorable tax legislation has led to a decline in food donations because corporations feared civil and criminal liabilities. New tax laws, however, provide necessary legal shelter and offer generous tax breaks—the floodgates for giving are now open.
Every year, workers and business owners embark on tax-filing journeys that are often confusing but highly beneficial. As many are aware, tax refunds and tax breaks in the form of deductions can drastically reduce liability. While scanning your favorite tax preparation website, it’s important to know that tax credits and deductions are stark contrasts but work in tandem with each other.
The never-ending goal of ending world hunger starts with caring about the exorbitant food waste that is prevalent across the globe. One way that corporations and manufacturers could assist the many US food banks currently suffering from shortages of food donations would be to loosen restrictions on donating unsold food items.
Return and refund scams are very commonplace. It’s estimated that nearly 10% of all refunds and returns somehow abuse store return and refund policies. Learn about some common scams and 2 simple steps you can implement to help prevent your store from being defrauded.
Loss prevention is a huge part of retail. Regardless of size and the amount of shrink, controlling loss of products impacts retail as a whole.
CCTV has long been one of the most important, central methods to deter shoplifters and help identify repeat offenders. Great CCTV systems mean you can monitor problem areas constantly, and even if you can’t react to a thief in real time, you could still get a good idea of their identity, behavior, and the products that they targeted.
Key control is a necessary burden for every store. You have to lock up your valuables and make sure that you keep a close eye on the movements of the keys to prevent loss and duplication. Here are 5 best practices that can help you improve your key control system.
Minimizing shrink is crucial for any retail business. Losses come in two main categories; known and unknown. As a loss prevention team, your goal must be to move as many losses into the known group as possible. That way, they can be more closely watched and managed.
