Almo Goes Green
Almo Corp. used a three-year environmental plan to significantly reduce costs and environmental impact, the distributor said.
The company reached its goal through a series of measures, including replacing its warehouse lighting, changing most invoices and payments to electronic-only, and using recycled paper while recycling all cardboard, electronics, paper, plastic and glass.
"The initial focus of our Going Green plan was reducing our electrical usage by 15 to 20 percent. We were astonished by the initial results and subsequent quick payback in our lighting efficiency improvements,” Mike Shive, Almo's Vice President of Operations, said as part of the announcement.
