/ Go Green
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the world population is expanding at a mind-boggling rate. The world reached 1 billion people in 1800; 2 billion by 1922; and over 6 billion by 2000. It is estimated that the population will swell to over 9 billion by 2050. That means that if the world’s natural resources were evenly distributed, people in 2050 will only have 25% of the resources per capita that people in 1950 had.
The world has a fixed amount of natural resources – some of which are already depleted. So as population growth greatly strains our finite resources, there are fewer resources available. If we intend to leave our children and grandchildren with the same standard of living we have enjoyed, we must preserve the foundation of that standard of living. We save for college educations, orthodontia, and weddings, but what about saving clean air, water, fuel sources and soil for future generations?
Some of the greatest threats to future resources come from things we throw away everyday which often contain dangerous chemicals that may, if sent to a local landfill, leak through the bottom barrier and pollute the groundwater. This can contaminate everything from the soil in which our food grows, to the water which will eventually come out of aquifers and into our tap water.
Many of these chemicals cannot be removed from the drinking water supply, nor from the crops that are harvested from contaminated fields. The risks to human health are tremendous.
At Zbikewear , we’re committed to making a positive difference in the world by helping spread the word about environmental awareness. Our goal is to use products and materials that are kinder and gentler on the environment, we know that every little thing helps.
Here are a few of our Go Green Facts
Use of Enviromentally friendly Dye -Sublimation Inks:
Our Sublimation Inks are free from Alkylphenolethoxylate (APE) according to the EC Directive 2003/53/CE issued on June 18, 2003. APE is a chemical product included in the EDC (Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals) list of substances.
Recycling 100% of the used sublimation paper:
We have a customized paper recycling plan for our business ,we make sure that every sheet of used transfer paper is recycled, we achieved that by hiring a specialty paper recycling company to haul our used sublimation paper twice a week.
Shipping our orders on boxes made from 100% Recycled carton:
By only using boxes made 100% from recycled carton, we are helping to save trees, which is one of the most important parts of the Go Green Philosophy.
Making our catalog available for download and not in print :
We used to print 5.000 catalogs every season, by making our catalog only available for download we are giving a chance for more trees to be saved.
Using only recycled paper and print supplies in our offices:
We have teamed up with Office depot and we are now using 100% recycled office paper, re-manufactured ink cartridges for our office printers and re-manufactured toners for our laser printers.
