Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) April 25, 2012
Samsill Corporation, one of the world’s largest independently owned manufacturers of ring binders, celebrates this year’s Earth Day by extending its sustainability efforts and planting trees in partnership with American Forests. In the second year of the partnership, Samsill has donated over $11,000 to plant more than 11,000 trees through American Forests’ Global ReLeaf program.
“Samsill is pleased to make a difference in helping to restore forests across the country”, said Bob Schultz, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing. “We share a passion with American Forests in providing innovative solutions to environmental issues. Samsill looks forward to continuing its support of American Forests as well as growing our line of sustainable products to help protect our planet.”
Samsill offers several Earth friendly product solutions designed to minimize the impact to the environment. The Earth’s Choice biodegradable binders are the first traditional sealed plastic binders formulated to degrade in 1-5 years vs. the hundreds of years it takes normal plastic binders. Samsill has recently expanded its line of sustainable products with the new Raw Binder made of durable 100% recycled chipboard. The Raw Binder also features a removable ring making it 100% recyclable.
Samsill is also doing its part by reducing its own environmental impact. Samsill has created an “Environmental Responsibility” team to investigate opportunities and implement programs to increase its sustainability efforts. The team will look at areas of improvement including power conservation, recycling, product innovation, and supplier requirements.
