In ongoing efforts to reduce their carbon footprint, EcoBox has recently worked with the City of Austin to install more energy efficient lighting throughout the warehouse and office areas.
The new T12 High Efficiency fluorescent bulbs not only use less energy but yield a higher output of light. The bulbs radiate less heat which means less energy to cool the warehouse and office areas as well. The City of Austin estimates EcoBox reduced their CO2 emissions by 3 tons annually. The lower energy consumption also means EcoBox will see a lower electric bill, thus another example of helping the environment can help your bottom line.
EcoBox has been reducing their “cardboard footprint” for the past 17 years by buying and selling used moving boxes which have resulted in several million boxes being kept out of landfills in central Texas.
