  • With our global operations we are…

    • Reducing carbon emissions and waste overall.
    • Minimizing resource intensity, improving energy efficiency and continuing to shift to renewable energy. Examples include:
      • LEED certified facilities at several locations around the world.
      • Incorporating wind power at our Ada, Michigan, U.S.A. manufacturing sites (since 2010). In fact, 100% of the electricity used to manufacture several of our products in Ada comes from renewable wind energy.
      • Solar panels provide more than 10% of the power at our Buena Park, California, U.S.A. facility.
      • Using timers and motion sensors to power down lighting and equipment in the Ada, Michigan, U.S.A. warehouse when not in use to reduce power consumption.
      • Ensuring shipping trucks to the U.S.A. distribution centers carry “backhauls” of scrap, empty pallets, recyclable materials or other freight on their return trips whenever possible, greatly reducing empty truck runs.
      • Replaced heavy wooden pallets with lightweight, space-saving, recyclable corrugated cardboard slip sheets for shipping. Corrugated enables us to fit more product in cargo shipments with less weight, reducing the number of shipping runs and thus our carbon footprint over time.
      • Wind and solar power combine to provide 63 percent of power consumed at our India manufacturing plant. The facility has one of the largest roof-top solar plants in the area with a zero-water discharge site.
        • The India facility recycles and reuses 100 percent of hazardous and plastic waste from manufacturing processes.
        • The facility collected and recycled 800 metric tons of post-consumer plastic waste.
        • The facility reduced carbon emissions by reducing paper use equivalent to saving 47,000 trees in one year.
      • Renewable energy and emissions reduction initiatives are in the works at our China manufacturing facilities.
      • Reducing water use in manufacturing facilities through efficiency improvements.
      • Diverting waste from landfill streams and evaluating further diversion strategies that achieve waste targets. For example:
        • Donating product that doesn’t meet quality standards for sale but is still safe for human consumption to non-profits rather than landfilling it. We also divert scrapped products such as protein powder to companies that turn it into animal feed.
        • Donating leftover event t-shirts and giveaway items to human services agencies that can distribute them.
      • Making efficiency updates to our Ada and Buena Park office buildings to help reduce energy usage.
      • Selecting planet-conscious building construction materials wherever feasible and choosing material suppliers closer to us to help reduce the transportation footprint.
