Doing our part to help protect the environment
At Don Mor CARSTAR, the term environment has two important connotations. It refers to both our impact on the planet and also the health and well being of our employees. We continuosly work with our suppliers to provide a safe and healthy workplace for our employees and reduce the environmental impact on our community.
One example is our partnership with BASF and our use of their waterborne paint. Because waterborne contains lower volatile organic compounds (VOC), it is easier to control the air quality inside our shop and spray facility, eliminating the harsh odors found on solventborne paints, while not having to sacrifice quality or performance. This also helps reduce production of VOCs.
Another example is our recycling initiative. Virtually ever piece of material including steel, aluminum, plastic and cardboard/paper is recycled following industry standards and thus kept out of our landfills.
Our switch to a paperless office has also helped reduce our use of paper and to save space.
