Top 5 Ways FundingFactory Celebrates EcoMonday

Happy EcoMonday everyone! Twitter is abuzz today with info about how you can be more green. Here at FundingFactory, every day is EcoMonday!  If you didn’t know, FundingFactory is the premiere recycling fundraiser serving schools and nonprofits since 1998. Learn more about us here.

We are constantly applying earth-friendly initiatives throughout our office and warehouse to ensure we practice what we preach. Here are five ways that FundingFactory has chosen to lead the eco-revolution by example:

  • In 2011, 99 percent of everything that came into our facility was recycled. That statistic includes not only includes the e-waste that you send in, but also the cardboard boxes, filling, and plastic that you ship it in.
  • In our break rooms we have four bins: plastic, paper, aluminum, and landfill.
  • We reuse plates, cups, and silverware. No paper or plastic here!
  • We partner with organizations that make sustainability a priority.
  • We installed auto off switches in all areas of the building. If there is no movement in an office or specified warehouse area for 15 minutes or more the lights automatically go out saving electricity daily.

How simple are those? Consider applying these green initiatives to your school, business, church, or nonprofit! Those initiatives have given us R2 (Responsible Recycling), and ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Certifications. FundingFactory has rescued more than 40 million pounds of e-waste from being landfilled.
