We're committed to doing our part to reduce the environmental impact of the work we do.
To that end, we've taken a three-pronged approach: using rechargeable batteries in our rental equipment; investing in carbon offsets to counter the CO2 we generate on a day-to-day basis; and committing to planting one tree for each rental purchased.
In our business, we replace the batteries in our rental equipment every day. From an economic standpoint alone, that adds up to thousands of dollars per year. Early on, we switched to rechargeable batteries as a cost-saving measure, but in doing so, we're saving more than money.
Standard alkaline batteries are used once and then discarded. They can release harmful metals into the environment when they are left in a landfill. At the rate we replace them, switching to rechargeable AA and 9V batteries reduced our battery consumption by 98%.
These rechargeable batteries can be used approximately 2000 times before needing to be replaced, which means that they have an effective service life of 2-3 years, a 99.9% improvement over alkaline battery service life.
And when they can charge no more, we recycle our rechargeable batteries, a process which separates the individual chemical components and prepares them for use in new products.
Our Field Team members drive a lot, delivering rentals to our customers and picking them up. All that driving generates at least 1T of CO2 per location.
To counter this, we've purchased carbon offsets for each ton of carbon that our business operations create. These offsets fund renewable energy and ecology projects throughout the United States.
We care deeply about creating a business that gives back, not only to our employees and communities, but to nature, too. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’re partnering with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every metal detector rental or magnetic locator rental purchased.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.
