We operate our business in an environmentally responsible manner.

Landscape Forms makes stewardship of the environment a vital part of our business. We employ recycled materials and wood from managed forests in the manufacture of our products. We utilize recyclable materials in our products and ship on recycled skids using recyclable cardboard. We adopt environmentally sustainable processes. We converted 80% of our fiberglass parts and products to more environmentally benign materials and our search for substitute materials continues. 99% of the water used in our manufacturing is recycled and our impact on air and water is so minimal that the DEQ no longer requires us to secure permits. We implement energy efficient practices as part of our sustainability mission. Conversion from metal halide lighting to T5 and T8 in our manufacturing facilities has reduced energy consumption by 30%. We give preference to local and regional material suppliers to reduce the environmental impacts resulting from transportation. Landscape Forms is an active participant in the professional and commercial life of our industry. We support the Landscape Architecture Foundation at the Second Century Level. And we are corporate members of ASLA, CSLA, IIDA, IDA, Main Street USA, BOMA and the USGBC, which administers LEED criteria and accreditation. The responsibility of choosing a product means choosing the company that makes it. It's more than a transaction -- it's a partnership. One company has proven its capability and commitment as a trusted partner and leader in site furniture. That company is Landscape Forms. For more information contact Landscape Forms at 800.521.2546
