Whirlpool Corporation takes steps to use less paper in product packaging

A pilot program at Whirlpool Corporation is taking thousands of pages of literature that has traditionally been included in packaging for its products, and replacing it with QR codes that instead lead to digital versions. The project started in 2019 and involves multiple stages of implementation.

Now we want to go a little bit further and eventually make the documentation 100 percent digital.

Paper waste waits for recycling at recycling plantMulti-paged Use and Care Guides were the main document that was eliminated. The pilot program, which has been launched so far in select products, will save the printing of 1,103,798,919 pages of literature by the end of 2021. That equates to more than 110,000 trees saved.
