Our family has been in this business for 3 generations and we would love for another 3 generations to continue in this business. We want the world to be a great place for future Nuts.com generations, but fear that our neglect of the environment might make that harder and harder to fulfill.
We're hardly perfect when it comes to our environment, but we will make it a priority to become better informed and take necessary steps to reduce the impact Nuts.com has on the environment.
Currently we use 100% post-consumer recycled cardboard boxes and starch biodegradable packing peanuts. We also recycle all of our cardboard boxes. As for lighting, we replaced HID (metal halide) lights with energy efficient fluorescent light fixtures. These new lights consume almost 60% less energy. We also attached motion sensors so that when we aren't working in an area of our warehouse the lights go out and save even more. Furthermore, we sell over 250 organic products.
It's a start. But we have a long way to go.
