Keeping A Building Green Goes Beyond LEED Certification: The Green Office Move is an article written by David L. King, AIA, CFM. President, LEED AP, ICB, LLC, Parent Company of Samson Carts & CrateXpress. David explains in the introduction how companies strive to get LEED certification. LEED certification is the recognized standard for demonstrating that your company is friendly or “green”.
He compares the effect of using plywood carts vs “Samson carts”in an office move when it comes to the environment and the arena of cost savings to the commercial mover.
A case study is also broken down comparing the substantial savings achievable by using “Tyga Boxes” instead of corrugated office moving boxes (office totes) or book boxes.
The interesting part about both studies is the environmentally green option is actually a cost saver for the commercial mover, not an additional expense. Finally, David Shares information from the EPA regarding the “Waste stream” or affect that disposed paper and wood have on the atmosphere and on land fills.
