D&H Distributing celebrates the five-year anniversary of its “Go Green” initiative in 2015, as Earth Day marks its 45th year Wednesday, April 22.
It sold 46,809,568 ecologically-conservative products between 2010 and 2015, with an increase of more than 7.5 million items ordered year-over-year since April 2014.
“Earth Day is a great time to brainstorm on how else we can preserve resources, to review how efficient our current policies have been, and to assess how they impact reseller business,” said Jeff Davis, senior vice president of sales at D&H. “On Earth Day’s 45th anniversary and the fifth anniversary of D&H’s Go Green program, it’s especially appropriate to take stock, noting how to keep ecological endeavors top of mind, and encouraging a more eco-friendly channel through the proliferation of these products and practices.”
In addition to increased availability of eco-friendly products, it made headway in recycling and conservation programs, including installing a field of solar panels in one of its Pennsylvania parking locations and the collection of 17 pallets of material for recycling from a June 2014 recycling day event.
