Our Sustainability Efforts at EZ Checks
We are committed to working with our customers, employees and suppliers to help promote environmental sustainability, reduce solid waste, and minimize use of natural resources. Our efforts include:
Use of only renewable power - we are 100% powered by renewable wind energy through PGE's Clean Wind Program.
Use of organic inks - we print with non-toxic, organic inks.
Waste reduction practices - we participate in the Washington Country Green Business recycling program. We actively recycle shrink wrap from incoming pallets, cardboard, pallet strapping, paper, aluminum cans, glass and many other materials. We're always looking for ways to reduce our consumption of natural resources and decrease solid waste from our operation as much as possible.
Energy conservation practices - includes lighting on the interior and exterior of our buildings which were converted to energy efficient LED fixtures through the Energy Trust of Oregon.
Investment in wetland protection - in 2004, we purchased 100,000 sq. ft. of wetlands in Tualatin, Ore. to protect it from development and contamination.
