worker cooperative is a cooperative self-managed by its workers. This control may be exercised in a number of ways. A cooperative enterprise may mean a firm where every worker-owner participates in decision making in a democratic fashion, or it may refer to one in which managers and administration is elected by every worker-owner, and finally it can refer to a situation in which managers are considered, and treated as, workers of the firm. In traditional forms of worker cooperative, all shares are held by the workforce with no outside or consumer owners, and each member has one voting share. In practice, control by worker-owners may be exercised through individual, collective or majority ownership by the workforce, or the retention of individual, collective or majority voting rights (exercised on a one-member one-vote basis).[1] A worker cooperative, therefore, has the characteristic that the majority of its workforce own shares, and the majority of shares are owned by the workforce.

UPS established the Eco Responsible Packaging Program for customers who are committed to sustainable packaging. Companies participating in this program allow UPS to conduct an evaluation of packaging processes. These companies must meet criteria in three areas—damage prevention, right sizing, and materials content—to participate in the program. In order to participate in the Eco Responsible Packaging Program, the sustainability of shipment packaging processes will be evaluated in three areas: Damage prevention: Do the items arrive intact? Right sizing: Are the shipping containers no larger than necessary? Materials content: What is the environmental impact of the chosen materials? Note: Evaluation of product manufacturer's packaging isn't included as part of this program. UPS examines the transportation (secondary) packaging that you use for shipping.
