Reducing Our Eco-Footprint

Here at AVL we're doing our best to decrease our eco-footprint. Today we're sharing some of the measures we've taken to reduce our waste.

  1. We've replaced all our non fluorescent lighting--it's already saved about 50% off our electricity bill!
  2. We've installed a cardboard shredder--this allows us to reuse boxes and scraps of cardboard into packing materials. This eliminates hundreds of pounds of cardboard from landfills each year. 
  3. We've installed 30kw of solar panels that will eliminate our need for carbon-based electricity. To date we've saved over 2,700 lbs of CO2!
