At ECP Utility we are working every day to find and offer products that will help customers make ''going green'' easier while still being cost effective. As a result, from the founding of our company in 1998, we committed our company and resources to offering more eco-conscious steel foundation products and to make these items available at prices that make the choice an easy one. We continue to actively seek out green products and procedures that meet our high quality standards. Please feel free to send us your suggestions via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our commitment to reducing our footprint on the planet does not end with simply selling more eco-conscious products. We also looked closely at both our personal and business practices and committed ourselves to operating as a green business by following the standard of reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Here are some of the things that we do:
- Use the most recycled product on Earth - Steel
- Print on recycled paper.
- Reclaim production waste
- Use fluorescent lighting.
- Reuse boxes as often as possible for shipping.
- Use reusable water bottles.
As technology advances we are continuously looking for new ways to "go green." For more information about Steel recycling and LEED building click here. ECP’s ongoing efforts to be an ecologically sound company are reaping benefits for our customers and our planet. Environmental consciousness creates a better world for us all to share. At ECP, environmental consciousness creates a quality product as well. That's how we do business.
Current construction practices have a profound impact on our natural environment, economy, health, and productivity.
In the United States alone, buildings account for:
- 72% of electricity consumption
- 39% of energy use
- 38% of all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions
- 40% of raw materials use
- 30% of waste output (136 million tons annually)
- 14% of potable water consumption
It’s the world’s most recycled and recyclable material.
Thinking recycled material for your next job? How about our galvanized steel tubing? Our products themselves are recyclable. Our tubular products (by weight) are 95-98% steel, and are therefore at least 95-98% recyclable.
You may not know it, but steel is the world's most recycled material. Each year more than 60 million tons of steel is recycled, more than double the amount of all other materials combined, including paper, glass, plastic, aluminum, and other metals.
Recycling steel saves energy and natural resources. In a year, the steel industry saves the equivalent energy to power about 18 million households for a year. When one ton of steel is recycled, 2500 pounds of iron ore, 1400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone are conserved. By making recycling integral to steelmaking, the steel industry leads the buy recycled effort. Each year, more than 62% of the steel the domestic industry produces is recycled.
When it comes to being ecologically responsible demand that your foundation repair products are made with steel and produced by Earth Contact Products, a company that cares.
