At TerraPromo we recognize that our products and business practices have an impact on the environment and society. Our goal is to build an economically feasible company that makes a positive impact while at the same time promoting a future where all businesses can effectively do the same.
For starters we donate 5% of our profits each year to social and environmental causes. We use recycled and chlorine free paper whenever possible and encourage our customers to e-mail orders to avoid fax and mailing. To reduce our printing needs we market primarily through web, phone, e-mail and trade show communication. We also focus on using recycled and biodegradable shipping and packing materials.
Our products are competitively priced with good quality. Our factory has gone through the same rigorous auditing as required from large multinational companies like Disney. This audit involves evaluating important factors like wages and work environment. In addition our service is excellent and our production time in most cases is faster than many suppliers.
Outside of the office, each time any of us fly we purchase carbon credits to offset the negative environmental impact of our trip. It doesn't cost much but every little bit makes a big difference. You can do the same, just go to the "Cool Your Jets!" button on the Ben & Jerry's website at Http://www.benjerrys.com.
In the future we will look to introduce new exciting products that come from sustainable resources and are easily biodegradable.
When your customers ask you where you get their product you always have a choice. You can say that you buy from just any supplier, or you can tell them you get your products from an interesting company looking to make a difference by helping to preserve our earth for future generations.
