We are committed to monitoring and improving our environmental performance, reducing environmental impacts, incorporating environmental factors into business decisions, and increasing employee awareness and training. The same attention to detail that we apply in the design process is brought to bear on every aspect of our operation, so that our actions can match our values. We have established rigorous environmental goals that comply with and exceed all relevant regulatory requirements.
In practice, this means that we want to reduce our reliance on plastic. We are working to eliminate use of plastic in our shipping materials by choosing alternatives for bubble wrap and other plastic lined materials. We are also requesting that vendors move away from plastic and styrofoam when they ship to us. When we do need to use plastic, we seek to treat it carefully as reusable material.
