Environmental Initiatives

Responsible Expansion: As S&S Activewear continues to expand, our team looks for additional ways we can work sustainably. For example, we implemented waste-reducing procedures in our facilities, and introduced energy-efficient equipment in our warehouses. Take a closer look at what we’re doing company-wide to be even more eco-conscious in our operations.

Solar Panels

We’re outfitting several of our warehouses with solar panels—giving us the ability to generate clean, renewable power and help reduce greenhouse gases in our communities.

High-Efficiency Lighting

We use LED lighting throughout our company. That’s because LEDs are up to 80% more efficient than CFLs and incandescent bulbs. In addition, our warehouse lighting activates by motion sensors. When the aisles aren’t occupied, we’re not wasting energy.

Recycling Boxes

We make a huge effort to reuse boxes still in good condition for shipping our orders. We’re proud that we only ship a small percentage of our orders using brand-new boxes, greatly reducing our cardboard waste.

Paper Recycling Baskets

The impact of recycling paper goes far beyond just saving trees, and we want to help the cause. Each ton (that’s 2,000 pounds) of recycled paper can save an impressive 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4,000 kilowatts of energy and 7,000 gallons of water. We chose to place paper-recycling bins throughout our offices, so it’s a cinch for employees to recycle their paper waste.

Recycling Stations

Our office lunch rooms include individual receptacles so our employees and guests proactively recycle their paper, aluminum and plastic.

Water Refilling Stations

More than 60 million plastic bottles get tossed every day. That adds up to a staggering 22 billion bottles a year in landfills and water sources. That’s why we decided to install water-refilling stations at all of our facilities. Then, we gave our employees S&S stainless steel travel tumblers. We’re happy to say that we’ve greatly reduced our plastic bottle waste, plus our employees are happily hydrated.
