PDC Catalogs Go Recycled
With deforestation contributing to nearly 25-30% of global warming1, PDC recognizes our responsibility to minimize our environmental impact wherever we can. One of the steps we've chosen to take is to use recycled materials (25% post-consumer recycled content) for all of our catalogs. For our '08 Healthcare catalog alone, this results in the following estimated savings:
|Wood Use:||2 tons = 13 trees|
|Total Energy:||9 million BTU's|
|Greenhouse Gases:||1,455 lbs of CO2|
|Solid Waste:||789 lbs|
|Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP):||20%|
|Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs):||2 lbs|
Look for our new catalogs today, and be sure to recycle or pass it along so it can be used again!
