Merchology is so proud to announce that our facility in Reno, Nevada has become a Certified Green Business at the Innovator level, which is the highest tier of this certification. Merchology is the first small business manufacturing company to achieve this status. The purpose of the Nevada Green Business Network is to support and provide businesses with tools and knowledge on how to make eco-friendly changes to how they run their business.
Changes that Merchology implemented to receive this certification included sourcing more recycled-content paper products, LED light fixtures, and setting computer defaults to automatically go into sleep mode after inactivity. Merchology also switched to green cleaning products and improved their internal recycling processes.
Sustainability has always been top of mind for our businesses practices. In 2020, 16% of our total sales were from eco-friendly brands (Patagonia, Zusa, Osprey and more). When we launched our very own Zusa, our core mission was to influence our customers to choose a co-branding option that is eco-friendly. You can read more about Zusa's sustainability efforts here!
We hope to inspire more businesses to make eco-friendly changes moving forward. No change is too small to make a difference!
