WHY GO GREEN? While reviewing this catalog, consider the many incentives today to use Green products: BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE: Using renewable resources and generating less waste will create a stronger future by cutting production costs and eliminating clean-up costs. EFFICIENCY: Products are recyclable, require less energy to produce, and generate less waste. PUBLIC DEMAND: People are more informed and aware of wasteful products and practices. Businesses are expected to protect the environment. Television programs, national news, magazines, and other media regularly showcase Green themes. FOLLOWING LAWS: Green is becoming a requirement. Governments from the local to federal level are enacting more environmentally friendly laws. HEALTH: Eco-friendly products promote a clean environment by helping eliminate toxins that pollute air, water, and other natural resources.

What was Green? Perceptions of “green” or “environmentally-conscious” products have radically shifted. Historically, an “environmentally-conscious” product was more expensive, less efficient, and impractical for business functions. Now, Green products are designed to be cost-effective, efficient, and business-oriented as well as environmentally friendly. Protecting the environment is no longer underground. Natural resources are disappearing at an alarming rate; public opinion and awareness has greatly shifted in favor of protecting the environment. Corporations, cities, and even the federal government are requiring more eco-friendly procedures and products. Green has moved forward. What is Green today? While there is no standard definition of Green, a certified Green item generally means the product saves energy & resources, is biodegradable or recyclable, and manufactured using environmentally friendly techniques. Certified Green products are usually manufactured requiring less energy and less waste than similar products. How are these products Green? Products in this catalog have been certified by a third-party with strict guidelines on environmental practices or the products demonstrate a commitment to recycling, energy conservation, or waste reduction.



EcoFriendly: Product designed to be safe and cost-effective for the environment Recyclable: Product is made from recycled material or is recyclable Energy Star: Official Certification of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Introducing the New Standard Light Bulb



In December 2007, the United States enacted a bill that will phase out traditional incandescent bulbs to favor more energy-efficient bulbs by 2012. CFLs last up to 8,000 hours versus the 500 - 2,000 hours of traditional bulbs.

Bamboo grows much faster than trees and can be harvested without killing the plant. Bamboo is ready to reap after three to five years and re-grows on its own. Trees take from 10 – 20 years to harvest and other trees must be planted to replace harvested trees. Bamboo fiber is flexible enough to blend with textiles and strong enough to substitute for wood. See the products on this page for bamboo’s range of versatility.
