Green Initiatives
We realize that practicing true environmental stewardship goes beyond supplying products. It means offering an array of services and voluntary efforts to help our customers and others to be environmentally responsible. Of course, it also extends to conducting our own business and contributing to the community on environmentally conscious ways. Here are a few of our initiatives along those lines:
CONTAINER RECYCLING: For more than a decade, ABC Corporation has offered pickup  and recycling of our containers at no charge - including 55-gal. drums, 15-gal. containers and pails. A new drum costs $40 to $60. Re-using containers for the same product that they contained not only reduces the community's solid waste burden but also cuts our packaging costs and thus saves our customers money.


ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND PACKAGING: In all our products, we work hard to reduce package volume and minimize waste. We utilize cardboard cartons for soaps ans other products that are exclusively made of recycled paper. All our laundry product packages and Aqua System chemical containers are recycled or reused.


HAWAII RECYCLING ASSOCIATION: ABC Corporation is a longtime member in good standing of the Hawaii Recycling Association. We fully participate in the organization's activities and consciousness-raising.


ENVIRONMENTAL CONSULTING: Building on our established expertise in safety training and consultation, we can help you in the formation of a comprehensive environmental plan to reduce risks to cleaning personnel, building occupants and the natural environment.


TESTING LAB: ABC Corporation's in-house certification laboratory, staffed by a Ph.D. chemist, is unique in the state. Initially created to monitor the effectiveness of our cleaning products, we now additionally use it for environmental product analysis.


Responsible Manufacturing
HAWAII SOAP FACTORY: We have revamped our Hawaiian Soap Factory division to ensure that our manufacturing process and the locally-made products themselves are environmentally responsible. This means soaps and detergents that have low to no toxicity,  compositions that are readily biodegradable, and products that are derived as much as possible from renewable resources.
