Earning Earth Flag Improved Our Bottom Line

"NOW Foods has been partnering with SCARCE for a number of years. This partnership led us to undertake efforts which resulted in SCARCE recognizing NOW Foods as the first for-profit company to earn the Earth Flag for Business. The experience has been extremely positive for our company as a whole and for individual employees. For NOW, the Earth Flag is a symbol of what we can achieve when we work together to promote environmental sustainability. It’s a symbol of what we’ve accomplished, and a symbol of what we continually strive to be. Since being awarded the Earth Flag, NOW has been recognized by the Illinois Recycling Association with the 2007 Outstanding Business Recycling Program award. Our recycling program diverted almost 50% of our refuse from the landfill and provides NOW with a financial benefit of $40,000 a year. Our Board of Directors recently chartered an Environmental Sustainability Committee which endeavors to implement measures which conserve energy and resources. SCARCE has been, and continues to be, integral to NOW’s environmental efforts. We consider SCARCE a partner and an invaluable resource."
