THERE IS MORE TO BEING GREEN THAN JUST SAYING IT!
In addition to selling environmentally friendly dorm supplies whenever possible, the DormSmart Team has implemented a few green strategies in our business operations. Check out what DormSmart.com is doing to help save our earth.
A BUSINESS MODEL THAT REDUCES OUR CARBON FOOT PRINT AND YOURS
DormSmart's business model enables us to ship dorm supplies direct from our manufacturers and suppliers to your door whenever possible. To date, approximately 90% of our manufacturers and suppliers ship your dorm supplies directly to you. A great way to reduce our carbon footprint by reducing the number of times dorm supplies ship before they arrive at your door while allowing you to shop from home instead of driving from store to store, reducing your carbon footprint!
Our unique business model reduces the number of facilities necessary to warehouse large amounts of dorm supplies over traditional big box retailers.
An added bonus of our business model is reducing the amount of packaging materials used, saving trees.
REDUCING IT ENERGY CONSUMPTION
At DormSmart, we use smart equipment and software applications in our daily business operations to reduce our IT energy consumption and our carbon output.
IMPLEMENTING EFFICIENT BUSINESS PROCESSES
At DormSmart, we use integrated and hosted applications to streamline our business processes.
This strategy enables us to save energy and reduce overall facility costs while improving our response times to our customers and keeping your data more secure. Our efficient business processes enable our staff to access secured information from multiple locations. This reduces time spent commuting, again reducing our carbon footprint.
One of the added bonuses of streamlined and integrated systems is that it creates a paperless environment, saving trees!
MAKING SMART CHOICES
We always do our best to make smart choices at DormSmart. For example, we sell Email Gift Certificates that can be printed at the customerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s discretion. We do not sell non-biodegradable plastic gift cards that ultimately end up in our landfills and are toxic to our environment.
Did we mention we recycle?
These are just a few of the strategies we use here at DormSmart in hopes of making the earth a little greener for generations to come while still giving you access to the hottest dorm supplies on the market!
Live Dorm Smart!
