Going green starts at home, so we've employed some green-inspired and innovative measures at our Home Office, from planting drought-free plants to company-wide recycling. Read on to learn about these and other green-friendly initiatives.
The Light of Life Force
We use a state-of-the-art lighting system in our shipping facility. These sensor-activated six-lamp, T8 high-bay fixtures help us save about 133,000 Kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy a year. This translates into a reduction of about 80,000 pounds of carbon emissions per year. Moreover, our lighting system saves enough energy to power at least 12 houses a year - that's a whopping 132,480 kWh of power!
Reduce, Reuse & Recycle
In the United States, we use 100-percent recyclable and biodegradable paper fill packaging.
Life Force Australasia uses Envirofill which is made of a starch mixture derived from potato or wheat. This packaging product is 100% biodegradable and compostable. Envirofill is made from annually renewable resources and is also water soluble, so it does not pollute groundwater.
Life Force Canada uses packaging peanuts which are made from vegetable starch. These peanuts are 100% biodegradable, recyclable and reusable.
Plus, all of our product bottles (plastic and glass) are 100-percent recyclable and reusable.
In addition, in our Home Office, we've implemented a company-wide recycling initiative, so that all of the little post-its, printer paper, bottles and cans our team uses daily go into recycling bins instead of landfills.
Going Green is Our Business
The bottom line: We're committed to supporting the global green initiative and will continue to do our part to improve the lives of our global community in health, wellness, and environmental sustainability. We will continue to look for more efficiencies as we move forward in all areas.
Going green is easier than you think - just apply a little of your business sense: Investing in a little change here and there over time pays big dividends - for both you and planet earth.
