What do hurricanes have to do with saving the environment?
Date: August 13, 2012
The two don’t seem to go together. Aren’t hurricanes destructive to the environment?
Yes, but we turned that destructive energy into a positive. After our printing plant was pounded by hurricanes a couple years ago, we moved into a newly-built fortress of a printing plant that, at the same time, is great for the environment. Our Cinderella story is a feature on p. 32 of the August issue of Printing Impressions Magazine. Click here to read.
After realizing how vulnerable our plant was to hurricanes, we built a new plant in Largo, Florida that is Category 3 safe, with a Category 5 bunker inside to house and safeguard data. At the same time, we committed to an eco-friendly operation. We’ve cut greenhouse gasses and shrunk our energy footprint, with recycling that saves 6,700 very big trees a year.
Now our innovation has become a model for others, featured in a national magazine. Enjoy! And, by the way, if you want your printing to be weather-disaster safe and respectful of the environment, consider PrimeNet.
