Weisenbach has a long history of environmental leadership. Choosing to voluntarily document their efforts in an annual sustainability report is their latest demonstration of this commitment.
Columbus, OH (Vocus) February 1, 2010
Weisenbach Recycled Products announced today that it has issued its first annual sustainability report. Established in 1981, Weisenbach holds numerous trademarks and patents on recycling, awareness, and pollution prevention products. Weisenbach Recycled Products is both a specialty printing firm and an innovative recycler of waste and scrap; repurposing such materials as plastic caps, glass bottles and circuit boards into over 600 promotional items, awards and retail consumer products.
According to Dan Weisenbach, president and founder, “Even though conservation has been a core principle in our culture since we opened, we believe it is important that we take this step to formalize our commitment to sustainable business. The competitive landscape has shifted and as more competition enters the field, we want to help our business partners and customers understand how distinctive we truly are. We created this report as much for them as for ourselves.”
Weisenbach hired EarthPeople, a Dallas-based sustainability consultancy, to help produce the report. According to EarthPeople’s president Anna Clark, “Weisenbach has a long history of environmental leadership. Choosing to voluntarily document their efforts in an annual sustainability report is their latest demonstration of this commitment. What I especially like about this report is how it expresses their unique standing in their industry as a family-run business founded on environmental integrity.” Clark added, “We’re moving past the “bigger is better” era. People want to do business with companies they can relate to and who share their values. For my part, I have been so impressed with this company that I have begun using them for my own printing.”
