At KEEN we’re always thinking of innovative ways to reduce our impact on the environment. One thing that was really bothering us was the thought of simply throwing out all of the Styrofoam packaging material we have accumulated over the past few months.
This dilemma encouraged us to find an alternative. After some digging we were thrilled to find a company called Total Reclaim Environmental Services located in NE Portland along the Columbia River. Total Reclaim offers responsible recycling solutions and they were happy to help us dispose of our Styrofoam along with other unwanted materials around the office.
It surprised many of us around the office that materials we assumed were destined for life in a landfill could be repurposed into something useful. We were happy to add our Styrofoam, Computer Components and Appliances to the 200 million pounds of material processed through the Total Reclaim facilities in Oregon, Washington and Alaska.
Our hats off to you Total Reclaim, your eco-friendly business strategy will hopefully encourage more people to find alternatives to sending old electronics and seemingly un-recyclable materials to the dump.
