THE EQUUSTOCK ENVIRONMENTAL AND SUSTAINABILITY STORY…
From our inception, we have been dedicated to manufacturing a 100% naturally derived, wood based product line that contributes to protecting our environment, our animals and the human beings that care for both. With roots in animal care, environmental stewardship and sustainability, we naturally give attention to every detail of our product cycle. In other words, we don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk.
As pioneers in developing beneficial uses for millions of tons of by products, we focus on manufacturing a sustainable product. Through the selection of raw materials, manufacturing efficiencies, product benefits to reduce packaging demands, reduced consumption / disposal volumes associated with our products and regional production placement – we have built a sustainability model that is unique to the Equustock brands.
All raw feedstock materials are waste by products from sustainable forestry management certified sawmills or timber from sustainable forestry management projects and private land conservation projects utilizing timber restoration and reforestation, forest thinning for quality growth and fire cessation programs.
Utilizing the benefits of our proprietary UHCBS³ technology to increase the absorption and functionality of our products we have reduced the volume of packaging materials and associated manufacturing necessary to support the need of each consumer by four times on average.
Through our proprietary processes we produce super absorbent products that reduce consumption volumes. This reduction in consumption also brings reduction in disposal. This double sided reduction provides both economic and environmental impact savings.
With multiple plant locations, our regional production minimizes transportation distance to our customers and retailers thus reducing the energy impact and carbon footprint of every bag on the shelf. At Equustock, we produce a premium product focused on convenience, effectiveness and quality via our ongoing pledge to support a sustainable commitment to our product manufacturing, transportation, packaging and disposal.
Our Virginia operations are nestled in our eco-industrial park on the James River dedicated to a cacophony of green manufacturing businesses. http://www.thesustainabilitypark.com/ The Sustainability Park offers a unique environment for the development of large-scale sustainability and renewable energy projects and manufacturers.
Our manufacturing operations are zero waste sustainable production facilities focused on environmentally responsible production of our 100% natural products.
