At Berk International, our focus is lowering our environmental impact. Every day, we strive to improve manufacturing sustainability, thereby protecting the environment.

We have implemented multiple recycling and energy-efficient programs that are now practiced on a daily basis.

Energy-Efficiency

  • ➤ Installation of low voltage, energy-efficient T-5 lighting throughout the manufacturing and warehouse operations.
  • ➤ Motion sensor lights in less used spaces.
  • ➤ Variable speed drives to increase efficiency.
  • ➤ High speed converting and packaging equipment resulting in more production and less working hours – two ten hour shifts instead of three eight hours shifts.
  • ➤ Spray foam roof system producing R-113 insulated value – reducing heat costs.
  • ➤ Insulation of all window surfaces with energy saving materials – reducing heat costs.

Recycling Program / Land Fill Free

  • ➤ All production and office waste is recycled or used to produce energy in other manufacturing operations.
  • ➤ Plastic, cardboard, metal, aluminum, tissue, toweling and all nonwovens are baled and recycled.
  • ➤ Recycle bins are located throughout the warehouse for employee use.

Sustainable Practices

  • ➤ Recycled film is used for poly wrapping.
  • ➤ 100% recycled material is used for all cardboard boxes.
  • ➤ 100% recycled content is used in most tissue and towel products.
  • ➤ Paperless office is practiced to the highest extent possible.
  • ➤ Recycled office paper products are purchased.
  • ➤ Green cleaners are used wherever possible.
  • ➤ Lubricants certified by USDA Bio-Preferred Program are used wherever possible.

Waste Reduction
