Don't Trash the Box: Domino's and WestRock Partner to Encourage Customers to Recycle Their Pizza Boxes
 
Domino’s has announced it is partnering with its primary box partner, WestRock, to launch recycling.dominos.com. This new website will share facts on pizza box recycling as well as instructions on how to recycle them, and what to do if your community doesn’t accept pizza box recycling.
 
"Because nearly everything that leaves a Domino's store leaves in a corrugated box, we know we have an opportunity to make a difference when it comes to packaging and recycling," said Tim McIntyre, Domino's executive vice president of communications, in a Domino’s news release. "Our goal is that our customers will set aside any misconceptions they have around the recyclability of pizza boxes, read the facts and put their empty box in the recycling bin – or call their municipality and ask them to add pizza boxes to their collection."

American Airlines Introduces New Technology to Enhance the Customer Experience
 
American Airlines has announced a new way for customers to get through their transactions, and that’s with their new touchless check-in experience. This touchless check-in experience, which started July 17, lets the user go to the gate without even touching the kiosk screen, even if they’re checking a bag.
 
According to the brand’s website, “When the customer arrives at the check-in kiosk, they can scan the boarding pass on their personal mobile device or one they printed out at home. After the boarding pass is scanned, the kiosk automatically prints the bag tags, all without the customer having to touch the kiosk. This new technology will be in place at more than 230 airports.”
