At TriSports.com we are very proud of the measures we have taken as a company to maintain and implement company-wide procedures that lessen our impact on the environment. Our daily commitment to environmental responsibility is just one facet of our company culture that makes TriSports.com a unique place to work and to shop. Being "green" has in the last few years become quite trendy, but at TriSports.com sustainability has been at the forefront since the company was created in 1999. Some of the ways we are able to achieve our goal to reduce our impact on the environmant are:Commuter Program: Employees are rewarded for their daily commuting miles to and from work. A locker room with showers is provided to encourage commuting.
Facility-Wide Reuse/Recycling: Everything that is recyclable in the building is recycled or reused. From re-using the paper we print on to print non-official items, to recycling everything possible in the lunch room, to sending off our used DVD's and CD's to be recycled - there's not much around here that gets sent to the landfill! Even when we are out at events - if they don't recycle, we bring it home with us!
Soles to Souls Program: Through providing a drop off point for used athletic shoes to be donated to those who would otherwise go without, we are helping change the world, one used pair of shoes at a time. It takes less energy to reuse a pair of shoes, than it does to make a new pair and they don't get sent to the landfill!
Green Building Practices: Our facility was designed using natural day lighting techniques, with flooring made from recycled materials and furniture by Herman Miller - the leader in environmentally responsible business practice and furniture design and with the use of native landscaping to reduce water use and provide building shade.
Encouraging Others: Our company standard email signatures help spread the word to countless consumers to "Please consider the environment..." We believe all it takes is a little reminder now and then to help people stay on track.
Now, in addition to doing what we can in-house, we are giving YOU the opportunity to lessen your impact! We have created the GREENBOX program so you have the choice to have your order packed in a reused box with reused packing material. When you select this option at check out, we will make evey effort to fill your request based on the boxes we have on hand. One box at a time, we can all work our way towards a more sustainable future!
Thanks for choosing TriSports.com and thanks for implementing your own "green" practices!
