Applying Lean Six Sigma to the Environment

EC 013: Interview #2 on e6s Methods Podcast about Greening Your Lean Event

3 min read


For episode 13, I’m playing another interview I had with e6s Methods podcast, hosted by Aaron Spearin. We go over tips for greening your 5s events.

I also go over this in detail in Episode 9 of my podcast, which you can find at

In this episode, we go beyond just the green discussion, and we talk about 5S in general, including the experiences we’ve both had, good and bad.

I highly recommend their podcast if you are Lean Six Sigma practitioner. I think you’ll get a lot of value out of it. You can go to to learn more, and I’ll have a link in the show notes for this.

One note, the audio quality is not real good on my end. Aaron sounds great, but mine’s sounds like I’m in a fish tank or something. I’ll probably need to get a better headset or office setup. Hopefully it’s not too distracting, and you can still get a lot out of the episode.

Just a final reminder, the 90-day WASTE Walk Challenge is starting on October 1st. Time is running out! It’s completely free. We’re going to give you a step-by-step guidance on how to conduct a WASTE walk before the end of the calendar year, so the end of December, so you can implement those ideas within 90 days, so that would be the middle of next year. You have some time, it’s not super fast-paced. It’s designed for people’s schedules who are busy. You can look at the list of tasks that we’re going to ask you to do on our site. You can go to the upper right section of the webpage. If you’re interested, you can sign up, just put in your email address and then that will get you into the contact list for October 1st.

Basically, what you’re going to do, you’re going to get email reminders for each task as they are due, and then you can kind of stay on track with those tasks throughout the challenge. Go to and look for the link in the upper right section called “90-day WASTE Walk Challeng

Hopefully, it’s a very simple way to get all you guys involved, and try out this “WASTE Walk” Challenge. I think you’ll really like it, I think it’s a great way to get your teams engaged, and it’s going to give you some experience and some practical examples you can show to help further your career into more sustainable-type projects and events. Maybe it’s going to lead to a different job, maybe it’s going to lead to a change in roles at your current job. Who knows? The more experience you’re building up, the more opportunities that will open up for you.

Let me know if you have any questions. You can contact me through the website. Hope you enjoy this upcoming episode and the interview with Aaron and I. Thanks!
