Piedmont Plastics® receives IAPD Environmental Excellence Award for its environmental business practices.

October 18th, 2017 – On October 18th in Chicago, Illinois, Piedmont Plastics® was a silver–level recipient of IAPD’s Environmental Excellence Award, which celebrates environmentally responsible practices of IAPD member companies. This is the third year that Piedmont Plastics® has submitted an application to participate in IAPD’s Environmental Excellence program. Piedmont Plastics was a bronze-level recipient in 2015 and a silver-level recipient in 2016. The application covers topics such as recycling, conservation, employee engagement and community outreach.

"We are very excited to be recognized for our company's work to create a culture of sustainability. Our plastic recycling program, along with our other environmental efforts, are a collaboration of all of our employees working together to make a difference. We feel honored to be apart of IAPD and to be recognized as an environmental steward in an industry that is often subject to undue environmental criticism." - Tyler Booth, Piedmont Plastics® President. 

We have effectively reduced our environmental footmark through continuous sustainability projects at many of our branches nationwide. We have improved our environmental awareness with formation of a company-wide green team, plastic reclamation program, and a Natural Solutions Product line drawing attention to products containing recycled material. We are proud of this environmental achievement and look forward to continuous improvement of our corporate sustainability practices.
