Green Product Initiative
Green Product is one that reduces its environmental impact when it is manufactured, used or destroyed. Products that contribute to a safe and healthy environment for both humans and nature are consider being Green. For manufactures, Green means using a process to make products that limits or eliminates the amount of hazardous chemicals and materials. This practice creates a safe environment for the workers, users of the product and the community.
Creating a Green manufacturing process often requires a significant investment by the manufacturer. Accell's manufacturing department has established a comprehensive environmental management system that minimizes or eliminates the release of hazardous materials, including lead and cadmium, two materials used extensively in high tech manufacturing. To achieve this, Accell spent six months establishing an Environmental Quality Assurance system, an executive team and a fully streamlined and Green-compliant factory to produce environmentally friendly products. An independent audit of Accell's procedures for manufacturing a variety of products was executed to ensure compliance. It found that Accell is manufacturing its products in a way that eliminates or minimizes its environmental impact with respect to releasing such contaminants as lead and cadmium.
The Green Product's packaging is designed to be eco-friendly by using fewer materials. The packaging consists of materials such as cardboard containing post consumer (recycled) materials or a low impact plastic bag, all of which are recyclable. The plastic bag is marked with a "4" recycle symbol identifying the bags material as low-density polyethylene. This is an element of Accell's Green Products initiative and part of our drive to factor in environmental considerations through the product entire life cycle.
