1- Plastic is putting a strain on waste management systems, our oceans, and vulnerable communities the world over. A wave of single-use plastic bans is sweeping the country and the globe—most often on plastic bags, straws, stirrers, and takeout clamshells. What do the bans accomplish? They prevent millions of tons of plastic from entering the waste stream each year.
Discussion Question: Should we Ban Single-Use Plastics in the U.S.? In your opinion, do you think a ban can be effected nationally ?

2- Travis was machining a part in the maintenance department. It had been a hectic day and he was only 8 hours into his 12 hour shift. Travis was getting a lot of hassle/pressure over the radio from the operations team about how long it was taking him to finish up the part. As he was finishing up the part, his lead-person approached him to give him his next assignment. He asked Travis to make adjustments to a group of canister machines that are notoriously breaking down. This is a mechanic’s job that whole crew hates! They get stuck constantly fixing these machines just to keep them running. The person who gets stuck with this task can’t leave the area, can’t stand around and joke with the guys – they are hustling the whole time and get hot and dirty. Travis starts to vent his frustration at his lead-person, shouting so loud that the maintenance supervisor hears the commotion from his office and walks out to the department to find out what is going on. Travis turns his frustration to his supervisor. He begins to yell and wave his hands in anger. The supervisor reinforces the lead-person’s request and tells Travis that he needs to go service the canister machines. In frustration, Travis picks the part he just machined (its about 14″ long and weighs about 8 lbs) and lobs it into the air. The part lands about 30 feet away at the end of the maintenance department area that is open to the warehouse. Luckily, the part didn’t hit anyone. However, this is an area where pedestrians pass through periodically throughout the day.
Concerned about Travis’ attitude and how the situation went down, the maintenance supervisor relayed the story to his manager – the manager reported the situation to your team for input on how to handle the situation.
