WIEBER, JR. First Off C a r l y H o l l m a n I t's been a discussion for a long time, but with the current state of affairs, it is clearer than ever that we are all on this little blue planet together.

On top of recycling and being sure to follow local and national governmental regulations when disposing of chemicals, corporate responsibility means buying from ethical supply chains and making sure employees down the line, from the cotton growers to the screen cleaners, are paid a fair wage in clean and safe condi- tions and given the opportunity to take time off when they're sick, without pen- alty, and with options for treatment.
