MONTREAL, Oct. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - Globe Electric Company Inc., a leading
manufacturer of consumer lighting and electrical products, is doing its part
for the environment. Recognizing the need for immediate action, Globe is
putting itself under the microscope. From products to packaging to production,
Globe is looking for opportunities to institute green practices into every
aspect of its business.
Waste reduction is an extremely important component of environmental
preservation. Therefore, Globe has made it a priority to reduce waste in its
offices. Employees are encouraged to:
- Use reusable dishes and cutlery
- Use sticks of pasta as coffee stirrers
- Reuse paper and office supplies
- Recycle paper, plastic and aluminum cans
- Store files electronically rather than printing them
Globe has also developed new packaging for the Globe enersaver(R) line.
Traditional clamshell packaging, which requires large amounts of plastic, has
been replaced with packaging made primarily from paperboard. The new packaging
is sleek, refined and leaves a much smaller environmental footprint.
To highlight its line of energy-efficient products, Globe has constructed
a "Globe enersaver(R) House" in its Montreal showroom. This miniature model
home features ENERGY STAR(R)-approved Globe enersaver(R) products as they
would be found in "real-life" settings - helping customers visualize their use
"At Globe, we are committed to a basic environmental philosophy", said

responsibility, and at Globe, we take that responsibility very seriously."
