We consider the environment to include every social, natural and cultural surrounding that impacts the health of our minds, bodies and spirits.

Through recommendations of the ENERGY STAR program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, we have taken steps such as: replacing light bulbs at our facilities with more efficient bulbs that use half the energy; installing motion detectors to control room lighting; installing new, energy-saving HVAC and hot water units; and replacing computers with more energy-efficient models.
We also encourage our suppliers to: reduce excess packaging and to use recycled, nontoxic materials; to follow guidelines that will prevent the future depletion of natural resources; and to ensure the use of safe materials in manufacturing. The use of any restricted substance/material by a supplier will result in immediate termination of its business with RG Barry.
