REDUCING PAPER CONSUMPTION
Over 300 million tons of paper are distributed and produced every year. Forty percent of wood goes towards the production of paper, and a single large pulp and paper mill can consume over 3.5 million tons of wood a year. In an effort to combat this, we plan to reduce our paper consumption one instruction or flyer at a time.
It is our goal to bring as many sustainability initiatives to life throughout each of our product verticals to help increase the longevity of our industries and the environment. Our efforts help shape our world class engineering and industry innovation capabilities, and in turn, help drive better product design. We believe this will help us continue to be "thinking beyond tomorrow."

These plumbing systems save a large amount of wasted marine hose (when cut by the customer), space, and time on the customers’ build lines. Our entire marine product line showcases features that increase longevity and reduce part failure and replacements over the total lifetime use.
REDUCING GLOBAL WATER CONSUMPTION
We created an entirely new vertical in hydroponics using our experience in fluid flow, building the next generation of food and agriculture growing equipment, in hopes of feeding and healing the 8 billion people on planet earth. Our Hydra Unlimited division products use 95% less water than soil growing, have zero water runoff, greatly reduce nutrient and product waste, and include a 100% recycled/reusable grow media.
