Ordering for the School Year: Maximizing the Supply Budget

That seems to vanish very quickly. After ordering pencils, pencils, pencils, and more pencils, there is nothing left for all of the projects that the students enjoy so much. And, after ordering some paper and glue stick for 125 students over ten months, there will probably not be anything left for high-interest technological gadgets. Unless the teacher is willing to have a daily struggle over students bringing a pencil to class, meaning the pencils will be taking up much of the budget, there is going to have to some creativity, sharing, and give and take involved in the ordering process.


Most teachers have about $250.00-$500.00 to spend on supplies for the next school year. This figure does not include books or computers, but it does include items like bulletin board decorations (which no longer seem to be reusable, since over the course of the year students feel they can write on them and rip them down when the teacher is absent), paper, pens, colored pencils, poster board, videos or DVDs, machines on which to present the videos or DVDs, overhead transparencies, markers (dry erase, overhead, and washable), erasers, chalk, portfolio folders, file folders, printer toner. $500.00 may look like a lot of money at first, but ten boxes of 144 pencils costs approximately $120.00. If a teacher in middle school sees 125 students a week, and 50 pencils are “borrowed” a week, then in around 30 weeks, there will be no more pencils, and that is figuring low, because the student is not going to bring that pencil to class all week.

The average teacher puts about $500 of his/her own money into the classroom per year; that is according to a 2002 report. That is a personal choice, by a dedicated teacher who wants to add a little extra to whatever is going on in the classroom, whether it is for rewards, supplies, or trip fare, whatever. Some teachers bring supplies that are at home to the classroom, such as older televisions, educational games their own kids have outgrown, and other items, such as computer disks or software, electric fans in places where none are supplied. Some teachers will not spend a dime in the classroom or bring anything in either. This is also a choice.

Teachers need to look into sharing with each other. Perhaps if four teachers each have $25.00 left over, that is $100.00, enough for a Math Safari that can be shared (and devise a schedule for students to use it). Share televisions and DVD players. Bring the antiquated digital camera from home to liven up lessons. Also, look into what DVD’s are available at the public library and determine which teachers are teaching the same topic at that time. Arrange for a mass showing of the DVD. That is another $20.00 saved! Have students work in groups, rather than individually, to save on art supplies, and also work in conjunction with the art teacher so skills can be incorporated or not repeated.

Teachers tend to work in isolation and this should not be. This year, when ordering, collaborate. Someone may lend you the $1400.00 digital microscope you need for just one class period.

Procter & Gamble Release Sustainability Overview: Designed To Matter- Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives

Worldwide pharmaceutical company Procter & Gamble have released their 2009 Sustainability Overview – Designed to Matter. The company focuses on five strategic sustainability concepts, including:

  • Products;
  • Operations;
  • Social Responsibility;
  • Employees; and
  • Stakeholders.

Product Innovation Leads to Sustainability Improvements


Procter and Gamble’s commitment to sustainability is shown in the development of new products. Product development is aimed at the majority of consumers who would like to improve sustainability outcomes without necessarily comprising value or quality.

During 2008, Procter and Gamble was able to reduce packaging waste in Turkey via changing the standard carton packaging to a fully recyclable seal tight plastic material packaging for its Ariel granule detergent product. The change in packaging has resulted in an 80% decrease in the amount of packaging used comparative to carton packaging.

Reducing the Environmental Impacts of Manufacturing Operations

Environmental impacts disclosed by Procter and Gamble include water usage, energy usage, carbon emissions and total waste. The company reports that energy use at its household care plant in Canada has decreased by 20% through upgrades to plant equipment. However the sustainability overview does not disclose the cost of the upgrades and what, if any, financial savings have been made in energy expenditures.

Procter and Gamble also highlight the seemingly impressive 86% decrease in waste achieved at their Bangkok beauty care plant, which resulted from a waste de-watering process reducing the volume of waste material. It is not disclosed in the overview whether this procedure will be replicated at other Procter and Gamble manufacturing operations throughout the world.

 

Social Responsibility, Employee Engagement and Stakeholders

Many projects in the developing world have benefited from the assistance of Procter and Gamble. In conjunction with the United Nations, vaccinations to protect against maternal and neo-natal tetanus have been made available for mothers and babies in developing countries. Consumers of the Pampers brand of nappies have assisted Procter and Gamble’s efforts with the purchase of one pack of Pampers nappies providing one vaccination.

Safe drinking water and hygiene campaigns have also been funded with the assistance of consumer purchases of selected Procter and Gamble products. Projects to increase access to education, including Protecting Futures: Keeping Girls in Education which provides sanitary protection products so that girls can remain in school, are highlighted in the sustainability overview.

Employee engagement initiatives including encouraging employees to take personal responsibility for sustainability matters by reducing waste, travel and energy use and the Live, Learn and Thrive program which provides opportunities for employees to participate in volunteering. Other employee engagement practices used include an idea challenge in India and sustainability educational presentations from senior management members.

Procter and Gamble states in the Sustainability Overview that it is “committed to being part of the solution” in relation to sustainability. To that end, the company has taken part in a variety of stakeholder and industry collaborative projects including product safety, climate change and assisting the developing world.

Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives Are Similar to Other Organisations

Similar to other large and multi-national organisations, Procter and Gamble’s corporate social responsibility and sustainability initiatives are comprised of a mixture of waste minimisation and reducing use of natural resources, assistance to communities in the developing world through increasing access to the organisation’s products and increasing employee engagement through projects including employee volunteering schemes.

The Procter and Gamble Sustainability Overview is an interesting snapshot of the company’s corporate social responsibility efforts. However, the release of the full sustainability report, due in the near future, will provide an opportunity to undertake a full review of Procter and Gamble’s corporate social responsibility performance.
