Because we consider our manufacturing partners to be an extension of our own operations, we go through a rigorous process to choose these partners carefully. We regularly send a team to visit our facilities so we can be confident that we are partnered with those who care about the planet and people as much as we do.* Regular audits ensure that all employees are working in a safe and positive work environment.
15% of internally recycled plastic is used in our manufacturing, water used in the extrusion process is recycled and reused, and there are solar panels on the roof to reduce dependence on thermal power. In our domestic operations, we ensure all vinyl from returns is sent to a special recycling facility. We use electric forklifts which not only reduces our carbon footprint but also keeps our employees from breathing in propane fumes all day long.
*COVID has restricted visits, but once it is safe/allowed to do so, we are committed to resuming all visits
