  • The pink ESD bags are the same type of plastic as grocery bags. We recently partnered with Eco-Cycle to dispose of that kind of plastic, and we can also throw in bubble wrap and ziploc bags. They sell the plastic to a company that makes decking from it! My advice would be to check with your local recycling company and see if they offer something similar.

  • The carbon offset idea is a great thought and one that we are considering. Besides the things mentioned above we now we provide indoor bicycle parking, RTD Eco-Passes, reusable silverware, dishes, and pint glasses, have converted all of our old fluorescent lighting to the more efficient t-8 bulbs, are Rohs compliant, provide a wellness benefit so people can join a gym, and I’ve been working on educating our staff so everything is knowledgeable about recycling. I’m sure I’ve left something out..but yea, that’s our list so far! Thanks for your input.

  • It’s in the works..when it’s done we’ll see about posting it here!

No public wish lists :(
