Using Recycled Materials Promotes a Healthier Environment

December 5, 2016

 

Facility Sourcing Direct values Safety; safety for business owners/managers, employers/employees, customers, and our environment. Yes, we care very much about the environment and strive to source products that have the least negative impact on our planet.

We think recycling is an important part of responsibly caring for our environment. Recycling is very important, as waste has a huge negative impact on the natural environment. Harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses are released from rubbish in landfill sites.  Recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by waste. Recycling is also a great way to conserve resources. By taking used materials and converting them into new products, recycling saves energy and protects the environment. 

Recycling reduces the need for extracting, refining and processing raw materials. For example, producing recycled paper lowers air pollution by 74% and water pollution by 35%; 88% less energy is used to make products such as vinyl flooring from recycled material, as opposed to using raw materials; and, it takes 95% less energy to recycle an aluminum can than to make an aluminum can from virgin mined bauxite. Recycling is a responsible way to care for our planet and each other.

The commercial flooring, that our company sources, is made of 100% recycled vinyl material and meets Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) criteria! We also source safe and environmentally responsible janitorial products. We are always mindful of the positive and potentially negative impacts our products may have on the environment and those who come in contact with our products. We strive to source the most resilient, safe, cost-effective, environmentally responsible, and attractive products available. We truly care about our world, and we have our customer’s best interest at heart. Contact us today and let us show you! www.facilitysourcingdirect.com Lynn@facilitysourcingdirect.com
