What Does it Mean to Be Green?


Going green means practicing green on a daily – hourly – minute-by-minute basis. It is a business style GreenDustries takes very seriously and entails good practices at every level of the company, from the office to the manufacturing floor to the warehouse.

At GreenDustries we walk the talk. Consider the following:

  • All sales material is approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. The FSC is widely regarded as one of the most important initiatives of the last decade to promote responsible forest management worldwide. To receive certification from the FSC, a company is required to utilize paper products that are at least 10 percent recycled. We carry this out to a very strict conclusion: All of our business cards and sales brochures, stationary, and folders are made from recycled materials and as such, have all received FSC certification.
  • GreenDustries has a devoted system in place to recycle office paper, food items and regular trash. We also recycle material in our plant and paper mill.
  • GreenDustries is endorsed by the Dogwood Alliance, an organization that campaigns on various environmental issues.
  • We don’t believe in pushing green on customers and consumers; to be viewed as fanatics would make our operation less credible. Instead we promote green as a business lifestyle: Being green means conserving energy, water and other natural resources. It means reducing waste and building sustainability in the manufacturing process and throughout the supply chain.

In addition, being green also means taking a look down the road. What affect does the product have on the environment after it leaves the plant? What is its role in the waste stream? How will it reduce costs and save on the amount of garbage in a landfill? To us, green extends beyond the boundaries of our offices and into society.

We’re not responsible for the hand that discards the trash but we are responsible for creating and producing products that will maintain an ecological balance after their use has expired.

And that’s what it means to be green.
