Smart Manufacturing Eco-Trait
The Smart Manufacturing Eco-Trait distinguishes all of our products that are made within highly efficiency environments such as LEED Certified factories or zero-waste facilities.
Smart manufacturing is an important step for companies that are serious about going green. It marks a point when companies adopt a holistic approach to being eco-friendly, taking green beyond just a product on on to the whole company. Companies are manufacturing smarter by using renewable energy, such as wind and solar, to power their operations, constructing their buildings out of reclaimed materials, offsetting emissions with carbon credits and utilizing more energy efficient machines and building materials. The office furniture company Hon even set up an entire system to collect excess paint particles right out of the air while it paints its products and recycle them back into the paint used for the next item on the line. Talk about taking zero-waste seriously.
Shop with the Smart Manufacturing Eco-Trait to find those companies who are not only manufacturing high quality, eco-friendly products but are also manufacturing them in the greenest way they can.
