Green is More Than Just a Color

Green is More Than Just a Color

Ever since we moved into our first company-owned building, Dircks has been very aware of the footprint we leave behind.  One of the first green elements that we implemented was to go paperless.  Yes, some hard copy documentation is required but for record keeping and storage, Dircks goes to great lengths to be as digital as possible. Additional measures include motion illumination in all offices to reduce electrical use, and motion sensors water control in the restrooms.

And when it comes to moving, there are ways to protect the environment while we’re on the job.  We offer e-crates on several commercial moves to cut down on the use of cardboard.  These plastic boxes are economical because they can be used over and over again and are indestructible.  We’ve also begun to research adding alternative fuel vehicles to our fleet. Both our business and our industry can go to even greater lengths to consider the environment, and we welcome your thoughts and feedback. If you’ve got any ideas you’d like to share about how we can do an even better job, please send them to newsletter@dircks.com
