Keeping our environment safe and healthy is an obligation that we all share. With a little effort and some smart choices, anyone can reduce their carbon footprint and have a positive impact on the Earth.
Here are some of the ways Huffman Koos is conserving energy and decreasing waste:
In Our Stores
Our store locations use only paper or recycled plastic bags in the day-to-day operation of the store. We provide employees with natural, non-toxic cleaning products that keep our stores squeaky clean without damaging the environment. We have also replaced every incandescent light bulb in our Showrooms with energy-efficient compact fluorescent lighting.
Warehouse and Delivery Operations
Our warehouses and outlets use energy efficient lighting, fans and heating systems. We recycle waste products including cardboard and styrofoam, and our state-of-the-art routing software ensures that delivery trucks reach their destinations efficiently, saving on gas.
At Our Offices
Our office workflow is designed to cut waste and conserve energy. We recycle paper, ink cartridges and batteries and our office equipment is configured for minimum energy usage.
