You Can Start Building Good Habits Today

Eating healthy can be easier than you think! You just replace a few unhealthy habits with healthy habits and you’re on your way to a happier healthier life. To encourage team members to make healthier lunch choices, the Mcwane Ductile Ohio Wellness Committee hosted Salad Day. Approximately 185 team members from all three shifts were invited to build their own salad from a wide variety of delicious fresh vegetables. Environmental and Safety interns got in on the fun by helping serve the first shift employees.
