Recycling aluminum, of course, saves bauxite, saves on the disposing of scrap aluminum, and conserves energy. Remelting scrap to produce new aluminum takes less than 5% of the energy needed to make metal from bauxite. Cardinal Architectural WeatherGuard Systems recycles 100% of its scrap through the foundries of local recyclers and uses recycled aluminum on all its painted and anodized matte finishes.


As one of the leading online distributors of teak furniture in North America, Westminster Teak recognizes the influence it plays on the industry and the impact it has on the environment specifically in regard to forest conservation and management. Westminster Teak has made their company‚Äôs policy to source their teak wood from well managed, credibly certified forests. Their factory was the first to join Nusa Hijau, the Indonesian Chapter of the Global Forest Trade Network (GFTN), an initiative of WWF®(World Wildlife Fund) to eliminate illegal logging and improve the management of valuable and threatened forests. They purchase wood only from Perum Perhutani, the government-managed plantation that promotes biodiversity and the livelihoods of the people that depend on them. And, because it is the only source in their supply chain for wood base material, they have 100% transparency; they know exactly where all their lumber comes from for every component of their furniture; from the forest-floor to retail floor.
