Green Practices - Our Plants
Alexandria Moulding is at the forefront of environmentally friendly processes and procedures. Our commitment to the Eco-PLAN program begins with a ‘green’ philosophy that we hope will become deeply engrained in our every day operations and in the every day lives of our employees.
- Our production and manufacturing procedures ensure the best yield from all raw boards which reduces waste.
- All wood chips and sawdust remaining from our manufacturing procedures are collected through an extensive network of state of the art dust collection systems. This production remnant material is then sent to a central location where it is recycled, and packaged into horse bedding or fireplace pellets.
- We made a conscious decision to use a water-based primer rather than an oil/lacquer based primer for all our priming requirements.
Green Practices - Our People
From turning off the lights at night, to setting targets for reducing greenhouse gas, employees at each Alexandria facility are committed to reducing the energy and emissions of the company. Educational initiatives help employees learn more about reducing their power and water usage and finding alternatives to harsh chemical cleaners. Employees also learn about the positive impact of eating locally-produced food, reducing fuel consumption, and other ways to incorporate green practices into everyday life.
We believe that by making small changes we can have a big impact, and we encourage our hundreds of employees to make the world a better place one step at a time.
