HealthCare International, Inc. Takes an Environmental Leadership Position by Joining Carbonfund.org’s CarbonFree Program
Seattle, WA, January 30, 2008
HealthCare International, Inc., announced today that it has offset its carbon emissions with Carbonfund.org, the country’s leading carbon offset organization. HealthCare International, has elected to offset all carbon emissions associated with its manufacturing, packaging, transportation and operational aspects of their business. This commitment places HealthCare International, Inc., as an environmental leader in the fitness industry and demonstrates proactive steps being taken in the fight against global climate change.
HealthCare International and its employees, as well as their customers are very concerned about global warming. Considering the implications of climate change, carbon offsets through Carbonfund.org are a natural extension of the work HealthCare International does on behalf of its employees customers.
Glenn Safadago president of HealthCare International comments, “Collectively, the fitness industry has not made an effort to reduce its impact on the environment. Our goal is to be the first company in the fitness industry to be considered a “green” manufacturer.
Our company currently monitor all phases of our production, packaging and shipping to insure that we minimize our impact on the environment. We have eliminated the Styrofoam and bubble wrap from our packaging. In addition, we are sourcing cardboard that is made from recycled material. Certain aspects of the business are more difficult to control such as steel manufacturing and shipping emissions. To offset the impact of these components we have elected to team with Carbonfund.org. For each product that we manufacture we purchase carbon credits through Carbonfund.org. These credits are then used towards building renewable energy sources, reforestation and energy efficiency research projects worldwide. We are a small company but feel that if we set a good example others will follow, after all we only have one world.
