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 Furniture is conserving energy and decreasing waste:
In Their Stores
All store locations use only paper or recycled plastic bags in the day-to-day operation of the store. They provide employees with natural, non-toxic cleaning products that keep our stores squeaky clean without damaging the environment. They have also replaced every incandescent light bulb in their Showrooms with energy-efficient compact fluorescent lighting.
Warehouse and Delivery Operations
Huffman Koos warehouses and outlets use energy efficient lighting, fans and heating systems. They recycle waste products including cardboard and styrofoam, and state-of-the-art routing software ensures that delivery trucks reach their destinations efficiently, saving on gas.
At Their Offices
Corporate office workflow is designed to cut waste and conserve energy. They now recycle paper, ink cartridges and batteries and all office equipment is configured for minimum energy usage.
Anthony Mehran President and CEO of Huffman Koos Furniture recently stated in a company meeting “every Huffman Koos associate is being asked to contribute to our recycling efforts in order to better our environment. It is our humanitarian duty to work on this initiative as a team.”
