At Beatrice, we believe in doing our
part to help the environment. It has been a long process to
ensure that everything is done correctly, from product packaging,
sales and order forms, as well as the office-recycling program.
Below are just a few ways how we are doing our part.
Careful consideration is given
when new products are formulated at Beatrice, and this especially is
true for the packaging aspect. Recyclable and recycled materials
are always chosen in the production of any Beatrice product, whether
it is shipping cartons or containers, Beatrice makes sure that
the materials used are of a recyclable nature and can be recycled
by most recycling centers. The use of Expanded Polystyrene
(EPS) #6, which is what packing peanuts are made of are not
allowed for packaging and shipping at Beatrice. If we do
receive this material from our vendors, we either try and reuse
it, but never throw it in general trash, as this material is not
readily accepted at recycling facilities.
Beatrice Technologies also plays a major factor in recycling, with
the recycling of various old technology products located at a
customer premises. We will also recycle old copper cabling,
cardboard, and plastic bags that patch cords and computer
equipment is wrapped in. Nothing gets thrown in a generic
dumpster. If no recycling is present at customer premises,
we will haul it away ourselves and use our own recycling system.
Beatrice participate in
the company recycling program and are encouraged not to waste
paper. Separate bins are installed in Beatrice offices: Blue for
recyclable materials, and gray for non-recyclable materials. This
program has become very successful with employees and has created
awareness to our environment and surroundings.
