We’re looking at the entire manufacturing chain and are open to considering a range of options from reducing the power requirements of our plant to using organic, sustainable, biodegradable, or ethically sourced materials.”
“This isn’t a trend,” Borsari continues, “this is the way manufacturing is being done now. It’s responsible. We believe that other manufacturing organizations are beginning to see the value in implementing green alternatives. The end result is a more earth-conscious product.”
