RIGO™ LONG AGO APPRECIATED THE NEED FOR AN ALL ENCOMPASSING “GREEN” CORPORATE PHILOSOPHY, EXTENDING FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS, THROUGH THE LIFESPAN OF A GIVEN PRODUCT. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING TIRELESSLY TO PRODUCE STYLISH WALLCOVERING PRODUCTS THAT ARE SUSTAINABLE, WHILE CONDUCTING OUR OPERATIONS IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE MANNER..

MORE THAN 20 YEARS AGO, WHEN MUCH OF THE INDUSTRY WAS SLOW TO ADDRESS ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, FIDELITY MADE THE DECISION TO ELIMINATE TOXIC, SOLVENT-BASED INKS FROM ALL PRODUCTS, INSTEAD USING INKS FREE OF OZONE DEPLETING CHEMICALS. WE PRODUCE EXCLUSIVELY ON PHTHALATE FREE, LOW VOC EMITTING VINYLS.

WE HAVE MADE TREMENDOUS PROGRESS IN REDUCING THE AMOUNT OF WATER AND ENERGY USED AT OUR PLANTS, OFFICES AND WAREHOUSE, AS WELL AS ENCOURAGING THE USE OF FUEL EFFICIENT VEHICLES BY OUR MANAGEMENT AND STAFF TO THE LARGEST EXTENT POSSIBLE. OUR 250000 SQ FOOT WAREHOUSE HAS BEEN COVERED WITH SOLAR PANELS, SO AS TO CREATE AN ELECTRICITY SURPLUS! .

RECYCLED CONTENT

AN AGGRESSIVE RECYCLING PROGRAM WAS IMPLEMENTED TO SHARPLY REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF WASTE SENT TO LANDFILLS, INCLUDING SCRAP METAL, PAPER AND CARDBOARD, AS WELL AS SCRAP VINYL AND WALLCOVERING TRIM. LEFTOVER INK IS RETURNED TO THE INK ROOM AND RECYCLED FOR USE IN UPCOMING PRODUCTION

A STRONG EMPHASIS HAS BEEN MADE TO USE VINYL AND BACKING WITH THE MAXIMUM RECYCLED CONTENT. AND UNUSABLE VINYL IS RECYCLED TO USE AS PACKAGING MATERIAL FOR OUR RIGO™
