What is “sustainable design?”
Sustainable design is a commitment: a promise to our customers, employees, and even our children that Tri-Coastal Design will do its part to make the world a “Greener” place. Our sustainable design pledge means we will continue to lower our company’s environmental impact, maintain healthy and happy workplaces for each and every one of our employees, and improve our products with earth-friendly materials.
The Tri-Coastal Sustainable Design Mission Statement means we:
Enhance product quality with environmentally friendly materials.
Conserve and protect water.
Optimize processes to minimize waste and conserve energy.
Reduce reliance on non-renewable energy sources.
We’re just getting started, and throughout the company, there’s a rumble of excitement; where will our sustainable design policy will lead us next? Only time will tell.
Why would Tri-Coastal Design invest in sustainable design?
Of course, we all live on the same planet. Doing our part to conserve that most precious of resources must be at the top of our list as a responsible, caring company.
But it’s not all altruism. When we conserve energy and resources, we lower overhead. Minimizing waste and optimizing processes lets us save money while we “save the world.” Happy, healthy coworkers are more productive, willing to work harder or longer if an order needs rushing, and make for a more pleasant workplace. As we develop more efficient, effective ways to produce, we’re able to lower costs and pass savings on to our customers.
Plus, our conservation efforts dovetail nicely with many of our clients’, from Wal-Mart’s “Acres for America” pledge to a local mom and pop store turning off its lights at night. When you buy a Tri-Coastal product, you do so knowing our dedication to supporting sustainable design rivals your own.
What are we doing to make sustainable design a reality?
The world is changing. Just as Tri-Coastal Design is a leader in fashion and sales trends, we’re leading the pack with a fresh, Green movement in our industry. And that journey has just begun.
It begins up top with a company-wide commitment to our customers and our coworkers. Tri-Coastal’s sustainable design mission statement is guiding our business, from macro-decisions about factory investments to micro-choices about office printing paper. We’ll continue updating our customers on our progress as we continue to invest in sustainable design for our factories, warehouses, product lines, design components, and delivery resources.
