In the last 40 years of our business, we’ve seen many regulatory and environmental changes as well as new production processes and technologies. At Plastifab we are very conscious of our impact on the environment so we make a daily effort to minimize our waste and our impact on our precious natural ecosystem.
We’ve all heard of the 3 R’: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Here’s how we’re taking these 3 R’s to heart in our day-to-day operations and values:
Reduce: We are making an effort to reduce our energy consumption. We have installed motion sensors for all the lights in our office and production floors. Also with the installation of more energy-efficient T5/T8 lighting technology we are further minimizing our impact when the lights are on.
Reuse: We have installed a closed-loop system for our in-house water system used in our production. Also where possible, we will utilize all consumable plastics materials so they don’t go to waste.
Recycle: Our team recycled non-production materials and packaging like cardboard and paper into our bins. Any metal we use is also safety recycles, as it an annealing oil. We also encourage our staff to bring reusable lunch and snack containers and avoid bringing food with extra packaging that would end up in the garbage.
We take our environmental policies very seriously. To give us the additional accountability we need for our environmental initiatives we are proud to be an IAPD Green Scene member since 2015.
