Business Name:
American Product Distributors

Business Type:
Shipping and Distribution

Services Provided:
American Product Distributors, Inc. (APD) combines consulting, information technology and product distribution to deliver custom solutions to large enterprises. We provide the information needed to make better business decisions and the automated controls needed to ensure execution of those decisions, resulting in cost savings and a more streamlined procurement process. APD creates custom electronic catalogs for office supplies, industrial/MRO products, corporate identity products and other product categories as requested.

Waste Reduction Accomplishments:
We have begun a system-wide recycling program. In the corporate office, we now have recycle containers placed throughout the building. We also use recycled bags to collect. We secured a recycle container through Allied that is now filled twice as fast as our normal trash pickup. We also participate in recycling programs with our customers and vendors. For example all of our toners we sell, we provide recycle options where we place a bin in their office space and we recycle them as a service. It's then responsibly recycled back with the manufacturer.

They are not necessarily Wipe Out Waste initiatives but rather a concerted effort by APD to become more environmentally sound. Many of our recycle programs have begun over the past year. We want to continue and grow on the examples I typed earlier.

Please provide 2-3 examples of your company's commitment to purchase "Green Products".
