Simi Valley, CA – derma e® Natural Bodycare, a pioneer in natural skincare products, continues their strong commitment to the environment by purchasing 82,125 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of Green-e certified Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from nationwide wind sources. This volume significantly reduces the company’s environmental footprint, matching 100% of conventional electricity use with clean, renewable energy.
This renewable energy purchase of 82,125 kilowatt-hours (kWh) avoids 111,936 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually. This is equivalent to NOT driving 11 passenger cars for one year, seven households’ electricity use for one year, 42 acres of pine or fir forests storing carbon for one year or 17 tons of waste recycled instead of landfilled.
derma e® purchased the Renewable Energy Certificates from Sterling Planet Inc. These certificates will help Sterling Planet build a market for renewable electricity, increase energy diversity and security, reduce dependence on foreign energy sources, support domestic economies and create US jobs.
This purchase builds on derma e®’s ongoing environmentally supportive efforts that include a company recycling program, in-office energy conservation, recyclable packaging and paper, use of soy ink and contributions made for animal welfare and land conservation.
“derma e® is always looking for ways to create a better and more natural world. This purchase of renewable energy is another example of how we continue to care for and lessen our impact on the environment”, says David Stearn, President of derma e® Natural Bodycare.
