All Florida Paper Does Their Part to Create a Better, Cleaner and More Sustainable Future for Tomorrow’s Generation
Medley, FL – In today’s world, organizations all across the world are trying to discover ways to become more sustainable without affecting customer service, operations or overall organizational efficiency. The team at All Florida Paper is no different. The company has found innovative ways to not just become more eco-friendly, but at the same time, save time, money and hassle in the process for employees and customers while doing their part in providing a better environment for future generations. Below are some of their sustainability initiatives.
Bringing Greener Lighting to Their Warehouse
All Florida Paper revamped their warehouse lighting system by installing high-output linear fluorescent lamps, commonly known as T5. Each lighting feature saves 2 tons of CO2 annually. In addition, they are using sensors, further reducing energy consumption. As a result, All Florida Paper is consuming less and less watts per year. While this change has translated to savings, their employees are also appreciative of a light that is softer on their eyes.
Reducing Their Carbon Footprint on the Road
All Florida Paper is increasing their resource utilization by delivering more while driving less. The company installed Roadnet Route Planning Software to help manage this initiative, and it is delivering remarkable results. The answer to increased delivery volumes is not always sending more trucks on the road, but rather, to make smart, efficient deliveries, which they have been able to spearhead with this new software. They are not only saving valuable resources, the company has also had a dramatic improvement in servicing their customers.
“Recycling” is Their New Buzz Word
As an organization, All Florida Paper has significantly reduced waste. Most of this waste came from cardboard, broken timber pallets, and packaging film and paper. They developed and executed strategies that lifted their recycling rates through a number of recycling and packaging optimization initiatives, including working with suppliers to reduce packaging waste, reusing and recycling of cardboard in their warehouses, reusing pallets in innovative ways, and the diversion of all possible materials from the waste stream.
In a statement from Armando Caceres, the President of All Florida Paper, he said that,
“We as a company have always been dedicated to be the best in our industry, by delivering exceptional service to our customers. The same is true of our carbon footprint as an organization, and our impact in our local communities on a daily basis. We strive to conduct business effectively while doing our part for a better, cleaner and more sustainable future.”
