Nickerson Corporation’s Green Initiative

March 17, 2015

Eco friendly classroom furnitureNo matter which way you slice it, today is all about being green – a St. Patrick’s Day tradition, of course! However, we’d like to put a little spin on the meaning of being green and focus on the go green initiative as it relates to the environment (something we are proud to be a part of!)

Here at Nickerson Corporation, we are extremely committed to practicing environmentally friendly habits and have made it a priority to work with manufacturers who share similar values and beliefs. In fact, most of the manufacturers we work with today already have or are working to improve their sustainability policies. But what does it all mean, you ask? The following are a few practices that sustainability efforts include:

  • Creating durable products to minimize and reduce waste.
  • Utilizing easily replicable parts so that total replacement isn’t always required.
  • Developing solutions¬†that do not emit hazardous byproducts into our environment.
  • Using design and manufacturing methods that do not pose a need to use more assembly materials than necessary.

By teaming up with manufacturers that share our same core values, we are able to supply products that we truly believe in. And although you’re likely going green in a different way today, we encourage you to think about your current classroom furniture and assess where you can hop on board with our greater “go green” efforts that pertain to being environmentally conscious.
