Jayco celebrates Earth Day with continued sustainability efforts

(April 22, 2015) — In time for Earth Day, RV manufacturer Jayco, Inc. announced continued commitment to its successful EcoAdvantage program, which aims to reduce waste, conserve energy and water and build more eco-friendly RVs.

MIDDLEBURY, Ind. – In time for Earth Day, RV manufacturer Jayco, Inc. announced continued commitment to its successful EcoAdvantage program, which aims to reduce waste, conserve energy and water and build more eco-friendly RVs, a press release from the organization stated.

Through combined efforts between employees, suppliers and community partners, three of Jayco, Inc.’s operating divisions — Jayco, Starcraft and Entegra Coach — have netted some impressive results over the course of the program, the release stated:

  • Saved enough electricity to power 10,932 homes for a year
  • Saved enough landfill space to accommodate a year’s worth of trash for 163,839 Americans
  • Conserved enough gas for 138.9 trips around the earth (in a car)

In addition to these numbers, Jayco’s green manufacturing practices saved trees, water and fuel. And while the program began in 2011, Jayco has been working toward using fewer renewable resources in its manufacturing processes for much longer. In fact, Jayco’s recycling program has been active since the early 1980s, and received a Governor’s Award of Excellence in 1991.

“Jayco has been committed to protecting the environment for years—long before we put a name to our efforts,” says Wilbur Bontrager, Jayco chairman of the board. “We strive to continue to lead the charge in our industry, and no matter how far we come, we’re committed to ongoing efforts. It’s all with the end goal of allowing families to enjoy the great outdoors for generations to come.”

In addition to adhering to more sustainable manufacturing efforts, Jayco strives to create products that are lighter to deliver better fuel economy.
