Sustainability

At MMD, we’re all about sustainability (AKA making sure we’re not stressing out the environment any more than we need to). We’ve compiled a list of some of our eco-friendly practices below

How we keep it sustainable at MMD:

Sustainability

We offer recycling of many of the products that we sell (including marking paint cans, hard hats, and safety vests).

We act as a drop site for our sister company, Flat Can Recycling. Flat Can Recycling’s mission is to make recycling of aerosol products, isobutane & propane tanks, latex paint, and batteries accessible to all residents and businesses in Illinois.

Sustainability

Our office is equipped with TerraCycle recycling stations for glass, plastic, metal, paper, and snack wrappers.

Sustainability

We’re a plastic bottle-free zone! Instead, our team quenches their thirst with canned beverages and fresh spring water from our amazing Hinckley Springs water cooler.

Sustainability

We only use AnEco trash bags, which are made from 100% compostable materials and decompose into humus, water, and CO₂ within 6-12 months.

Sustainability

We ship all of our orders in cardboard, and seal those boxes with eco-friendly kraft paper tape, which feature adhesive that is activated by water. We reuse or recycle all inventory that comes to us in cardboard boxes.

Sustainability

Our powerful software suite (including QuickBooks Online, Fishbowl Inventory Software, Zippy Kind delivery software, and others) digitizes most of our operations and cuts down on unnecessary paper waste.

Sustainability

Our break area is outfitted with real dishes and utensils (no single-use plastic or disposable plates here).

Sustainability

Our interior and exterior lighting has been upgraded to LED (which is much more energy-efficient than incandescent light bulbs).

Sustainability

90% of our products are manufactured in the USA. That means we’re not adding unnecessary carbon emissions to the atmosphere.

We hope this inspires you to try these ideas out at your company!
