Jason International Launches “Green” Initiative

Jason International, Inc., a leading manufacturer of hydrotherapy bath products, has recently improved its long standing effort to reduce their impact on the environment by formalizing a company wide initiative to “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” in every area of operation.
“We have always strived to be good stewards of our resources and conscientious in our operations,” states Remo Jacuzzi, President of Jason International. “Since Jason began over 25 years ago, we have upheld high standards in all business and manufacturing practices. It is with that mindset that we now commit to the preservation of our environment,” states Jacuzzi.

Although Jason has been environmentally conscious over the years, we have recognized the growing need for avid conservation and have responded by implementing several new methods of reducing, reusing, and recycling.

Jason has replaced high energy-consuming lighting and office equipment with ENERGY STAR compliant versions. Rather than discarding equipment such as printers, copiers, and network servers, we donate them to charities in need. In addition, we promote recycling for everything from paper to production materials, and continue to encourage employees to “go paperless” by distributing documents, reports, and correspondence electronically.

“The company-wide initiative to improve the environmental practices of our business was launched in June. Since that time there has been a concerted effort among members of management and employees,” states Charity Dennington, Green Initiative Coordinator for Jason International. “Everyone is united in this cause and dedicated to doing their part. We contribute in small ways each day with a much larger goal in mind,” states Dennington.

The purpose of Jason’s “Go Green” initiative is to increase awareness of and create opportunities for addressing environmental issues within the organization. Our goal is to promote the positive effects of “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” among our employees, distributors, and vendors. As we do our part to be responsible with the earth’s resources, we hope to be an example other businesses will follow.
