Earth Day 2013: Protect America has gone GREEN!

April 22nd, 2013

Protect America Celebrates Earth Day with Success of Green Initiative 

Austin, Texas – April 10th, 2013 – Protect America, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of wireless home security systems, is celebrating Earth Day by announcing the results of a long running green initiative.

Protect America’s green initiative was launched in January with an emphasis on reducing physical waste from packaging, recycled electronics, and paper. As part of the initiative, Protect America introduced a new box design that reduced the amount of paper used. The company also began an electronic recycling program that has responsibility disposed of over two dozen obsolete computers. Protect America is highlighting the success of its green initiative to raise awareness for Earth Day and conservation practices.

“A clear policy that respects the environment has become important to our customers in the past few years,” said Mackenzie Kelly, a spokeswoman for Protect America. “We wanted to respect this by instituting a culture of conservation that limits unnecessary waste. So far, we’re proud of our employees commitment to the initiative and the results have been surprising.”

To gauge the effectiveness of the effort, Protect America employees tracked current consumption against previous orders for certain supplies, like paper. The green initiative resulted in a near 20 percent reduction in paper consumed at Protect America’s headquarters. The biggest contributor to the decrease in paper waste has been the company’s new packaging. As a next step, the company is exploring additional options to improve their conservation efforts.

“This was so successful we’re looking into what else we can do,” Kelly said. “And pretty much everything is on the table, including solar panels, low flow fixtures, and even livestock for landscaping. Once we started looking at solutions that help the environment and our bottom line, we were ready to consider anything.”
