Please describe what you will be doing internally to actively promote and display Wipe Out Waste Ambassador initiatives.
We will continue to display the wipe out waste signage throughout our office space and provide compost bins and a compost pile on site. We will also include in our internal emails information about how to recycle and what the "green" options are for purchasing office materials. We also already do and will continue to recycle everything in our construction waste stream that can be recycled and minimize the waste that cannot be recycled.
Please provide examples of your company's commitment to purchase "Green Products".
We are committed to purchasing many products for construction use that are "green" including recycled/local gypsum board, low VOC paint and stain, FSC non tropical hardwoods, pex piping, green fiber insulation, and recycled paper in our office. We also use green fiber plus carpet and padding in our new construction homes and install energystar labeled appliances when applicable.
