Consulting in Action

S3’s services help real organizations achieve real results.

In 2019, S3 worked with a major clothing distributor to identify $100,000 in savings and divert 300 tons annually from landfill. Previously, the client was landfilling obsolete or damaged clothing. S3 identified equipment to securely destroy the product on the client’s site and was further able to identify two outlets that could beneficially utilize the resulting waste. The waste from S3’s client offset more expensive materials for the receiving partner and resulted in lower carbon emissions due to decreased transportation mileage. Dual wins for our clients and partners are common for S3.
