On August 31st, 2005 Ecologic Designs was incorporated intent upon the creation of quality products and services that have a net positive social and environmental value. Through adherence to our own and external sustainability initiatives and dedication to the best products and services possible, we are today redefining the local, sustainable manufacturing model. We focus on utilizing upcycled, repurposed, recycled and environmentally friendly materials in our custom product manufacturing.
The “ecological” solution
Traditional manufacturing centers on high-output production. What happened to excess, trim or damaged materials or finished goods wasn’t seriously considered. Fortunately, the economics are changing as awareness for the environment continues to grow. In addition to materials, the energy expended at every step and stage is undergoing unprecedented scrutiny. Materials that we divert include vinyl billboards, banners, industrial packaging, over run or 2nd materials and fabrics, defective products and more.
The People of Ecologic Designs
Participating in the evolution of business practices is the common ground upon which owners and employees stand. Fair wages and a collaborative working environment complement the passion for outdoor recreation many share in Boulder, Colorado.
The Center of Innovation
Since 2005, the Boulder headquarters combines an energizing, environmentally-focused culture with central access for national distribution. Every process and activity centers on raising the standard in sustainability. On-site recycling, composting, an employee garden, kitchen and bike transportation lower the Company’s impact in creative ways. The Corporate Register is among those who’ve recognized Ecologic Design’s results with an award under the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
The New Face of Manufacturing
Quality with minimal waste is the objective at Ecologic Designs. Expending less energy is a tangible outcome, and domestic production cuts the impact of transportation associated with offshore production. With no apologies, the Company asserts a belief both in responsible stewardship and creation of world-class products.
By focusing on utilizing and diverting, recycling and upcycling discarded materials like vinyl billboards, banners, tradeshow exhibits, over run materials, defective/warranty products, industrial packaging and more, Ecologic has been able to reduce environmental impact from these material while at the same time providing customers with valuable products.
The Commitment to Sustainability
We attain high levels of sustainability through constant innovation and evaluation. To account for this sustainability, we have developed a number of tools that quantify salient metrics. We have also invested in Global Reporting Initiative’s Corporate Sustainability Report, which received an A+, the best possible rating.
