GAR Labs Stands Out with Green Energy Initiative
GAR Labs, a Riverside, California-based private label cosmetic contract packager, continues their pursuit of establishing a platform of long-term sustainability. Having this platform has positioned GAR Labs to seek vendor relationships with larger companies desiring such capabilities.
- Riverside-San Bernardino, CA (1888PressRelease) July 26, 2011 - Based in Riverside, California, GAR Labs has become known for its clear record of quality and cost effectiveness. GAR Labs has undertaken a three-year major initiative that, according to founder Tom Raffy, "separates us from 99% of all Cosmetic Contract Packagers." Allocating extensive time and financial resources, the GAR Labs facility has decreased its energy usage while generating substantial amounts of electrical power. "I have spent a considerable amount of time and money to lower the GAR Labs' energy usage and demand while generating up to 100,000 watts of electricity every day," reported GAR Labs founder and President Raffy.
Recently, GAR Labs announced the completion of a major solar panel installation. Covering 11,000 square feet, the solar panels of GAR Labs will create a platform for the ages. "The daily and monthly amount of power that GAR Labs is generating is massive," stated GAR Labs' Raffy "and it is totally green." For GAR Labs, this is just one of the major recent changes in their efforts to move towards renewable energy sources.
According to Raffy, GAR Labs has installed green oriented compressors, chillers that required half the needed energy and water purification systems that save energy. "It has been a huge undertaking, reviewing and replacing many entities of the packaging process right down to our security cameras being motion activated to save energy," reported the GAR Labs founder. And according to Raffy, if GAR Labs can take such steps to reduce their carbon footprint, other companies can follow the same path.
"Local, national and global corporations want to know that contract packager companies like GAR Labs are making the right decisions environmentally," stated Raffy. He said that the strategy for GAR Labs is simple but effective. "In our effort to convert GAR Labs to a facility completely powered by renewable energies, we are establishing a more competitive position," reported the GAR Labs founder and president. In reducing its dependence on oil and other nonrenewable fossil fuels, GAR Labs has created a sustainable platform desired by many of the companies who are potential clients.
"For us, it has been an amazing journey of power conversion," stated Raffy, "and the establishment of our 11,000 square foot solar panels helps us take on step closer to our ultimate goal." That goal, concluded Raffy, is for GAR Labs to be completely powered by renewable resources.
