HOW GREEN IS GLOBE RECORDS?
Thanks for asking! We applaud your interest in all things green.
Here's a list of recycle/reuse efforts that we conduct on a regular basis:
Here's what we have plans for to reduce even further our carbon footprint:
- We always use recycled mailers when availble. All packaging that we receive is re-utilized if at all possible.
- We have a small solar power and back-up storage system for the office, which
suppiles most of the power needs of our internet sales and web development departments.
- We refill our ink cartriges and recycle the hopelessly dead ones.
- Our last 2 printer appropriations were from the Freecycle network
- We are constantly converting more landscaping of our grounds to low-water use and we mow our very limited lawn area with a push mower (no gas, no electricity)
- We promote digital downloads to reduce the number of CDs that need to be manufactured.
- We use recycled paper & often print on the back sides of already-printed paper.
- A majority of the time we walk or bicycle to get the mail out.
- We use laptop computers for most computing needs... requiring considerably less power
than desktop or tower models, with larger displays.
- We are looking into rain-catchment, and grey water systems, with the goal of having 100% re-used water for irrigation.
- Our new facillity plans call for a rice-bale structure with solar water, solar power, passive solar and additional landscape-based climate control.
