The statistics speak for themselves: paper products make up 40% and plastics make up 8% of all trash in our landfills. Every ton of paper recycled saves more than 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space . These materials are a large part of our business, and we are very aware of the environmental footprint our business can leave.
Here at Labrix, we are committed to making a difference in the health of the patients we serve. We also want to make a healthy difference in the planet we all share. Though it can be hard to imagine that just a few people can make a big impact on our environment, we are doing just that by the creation of an environmentally friendly workplace. Here are a few examples of small and simple ways we help reduce waste and take care of our planet:
We recycle an average of 50lbs of plastic from our lab each month
We use non-bleached, recyclable cardboard for all packaging
We recycle over 300lbs of paper products each month
We offer “paperless" test results online
Our local electric company performed an energy audit to help us identify areas of potential savings.
We are proud to provide not only the best laboratory results to our clients, but to also help provide a healthy environment for them. Please join us by recycling our paper products and doing whatever you can to make our world a “greener" place!
