Toyota’s dedication to environmental responsibility is at the forefront of every new initiative the automaker embraces. In the past year, Toyota significantly reduced waste in its manufacturing facilities by updating the packaging used to ship windshields. The see-through packaging also makes it easier to inspect windshields at every stage of the manufacturing process, as seen in this video.
Toyota also found a new use for the used oil from the stamping machines at its Indiana plant. The oil is now reused in blanking presses, reducing new oil purchases by approximately 80 percent (7,000 gallons) per year.
