FORMETCO'S GREEN PRODUCT LINE
Formetco has began to start utilizing materials and resources to help reduce the overall environmental impact of our outdoor products. Recycle programs are one of the first steps to ensure this initiative is successful. Most of our products are made of easily recyclable steel components.
We have taken it a step further during a renovation to our building to use eco-friendly materials, lights, and other improvements to help not only reduce operating costs and improve employee health but contribute to the overall initiative we have set.
In order for a product to be part of our Green Product Line it must meet a few different criteria. A few of the very basics are.
- The product must use less materials in production or manufacturing than the previous generation.
- All or most of the product must be biodegradable or easily recycled.
- The process used to manufacturing must be as environmentally friendly as within our capabilities.
- If power consumption is one of the components it must consume less energy / or utilize energy consumed more efficiently than previous generation.
- Packaging must be minimized or made from recycled materials.
- Transportation of completed structure is considered to reduce space needed for storage and shipment to reduce carbon footprint.
