Hunter

Security and Hospitality

Hunter is a 15 year-old miniature poodle.  He came to us from the Poodle Preserve in Cotopaxi, CO about nine years ago.  He spends his days alternating between his blue bed and his faux-zebra bed in Drew’s office.  Hunter recommends an article in The Economist magazine entitled Manager’s Best Friend.  It explains one researcher’s experiments to test his theory; that having dogs in offices might make people collaborate more effectively.

Our Commitment to the Environment


 

Plastic is designed to last for years.  It is primarily made from precious natural resources like oil and natural gas, which means that it is very important for us to make sure that as much of it as possible stays out of our landfills.

We take our commitment to the environment seriously and act on it to reduce wasted plastic.  Some of the ways in which we demonstrate our dedication to sustainability are by:

  • Recycling all of the acrylic and polycarbonate materials we generate that are too small to sell as remnants
  • Placing unused plastic in the very popular “FREE” bin behind our building
  • Selling plastic remnants, over the counter, at a discount
  • Recycling  of office paper, beverage containers, and pallets

Additionally, Drew is a member of the Environmental Committee of the IAPD.  You can read more about that committee’s work here.
Colorado Plastic Products is proud to be an Ecocycle Zero Waste Community Partner.
