But we feel like we are doing our part to change a detrimental pattern of pollution, and we hope others will follow suit.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) October 12, 2008
A revolutionary company, Green Van Lines, a pioneer of green practices, has joined the AAGD to provide unforgettable relocation services to members of the association and consumers alike. The company is re-writing the book of the transportation industry implementing green, eco-friendly practices we could all learn a thing or two from.
The company is committed to providing distinguished services to consumers while focusing on the bigger picture of reducing their carbon footprint on the planet.
Headquartered in Dallas, TX, a strategic hub, the company has branches in Miami and New Jersey as well. Green Van Lines is a full-service international provider to the commercial and residential sector whose services include materials sales, packing services, storage, and relocation. With over 30 combined years of experience in the industry, the company brings a wealth of knowledge, versatility, and maturity to the table.
Mr. Hagai Maman, president, saw a need for change to the outdated and environmentally detrimental praxis that surrounded the relocation sector. With a love for the planet, a desire to serve the community, and a wanting to reduce the pollution produced by the daily operations of a company, he has set-forth green practices that his company adheres to.
Green Van Lines uses only eco-friendly EPA certified Bio-Diesel in its entire fleet of trucks to minimize air pollution. Instead of deriving their electricity from providers that use coal-fired power, they instead utilize Green Mountain Energy which is harnessed from wind-farms. Although not always the cheapest, Mr. Maman states that "It's the right thing to do."
Along with a "lights out" policy to reduce electricity consumption, their warehousing and operations is fully computerized to minimize unnecessary paper waste. Green Van Lines uses only 100% recycled materials such as cotton furniture blankets, packing paper, corrugated cardboard, and plastics. They also coach drivers to utilize efficient route planning and traffic aversion techniques to reduce engine idle time.
"We understand that nobody is perfect and it is impossible to reduce waste and pollution altogether," said Guy Cohen, General Manager for Green Van Lines, "But we feel like we are doing our part to change a detrimental pattern of pollution, and we hope others will follow suit."
