High-efficiency fluorescents are used throughout the plant and office, and occupancy sensors and dimming systems are used in the office areas.
A focus on limiting paper use resulted in a 45% decrease in paper purchased. Electronic sharing, double-sided printing, printing only pages needed, and duplex copying are a few ways paper usage is minimized.
Gently used products returned to plant are refurbished and put back in stream of commerce. Less material winds up in a landfill and, by extending product life, 85% of the energy that went into the first manufacture is saved.
Recyclable cardboard and shredded paper are used as packaging material. Recycled materials are used in cartons. Multi-packs reduce volume of packaging materials.
Environmentally friendly ECO-Black Tex® paint is used on Cadet heaters. ECO-Black Tex® paint is made using up to 70% recycled materials.
Offering flexible schedules to office staff creates more 4-day workweeks, and a 20% reduction in many commutes. Bike racks are available for cyclists.
