Saelig “Does What’s Right” by Greening its Business
Fairport, NY- The informal motto at the Saelig Company is, “Do what’s right,” reflecting its fundamental belief that business decisions should be made based on what is good both for customers and community at large. With these values in mind, Saelig has joined the Green Business Bureau, which is a national membership organization that uses an online assessment to certify green businesses.
Saelig demonstrates that a green agenda is not only good for the planet, but it’s also smart business. The company’s sustainability initiatives include reusing inbound boxes and packing materials for outbound shipments, and recycling boxes that are not repurposed. They recycle waste paper, plastic and metal recyclables even though there is no recycling pickup for businesses in the region. As a testament to Saelig’s eco-friendly culture, employees take recyclables home for residential pickup and electronics are taken to the local electronics recycling facility.
Dan Evans, the Sales Manager, stated that Saelig chose the Green Business Bureau over other green certification providers because, “They do the best job of systematically stepping members through all the aspects of being green. If there is an opportunity to be greener, it will be on the GBB checklist.”
