Our Commitment to Sustainability
It’s The Right Decision For Your Home
As far as being ecology friendly, plumbing has a new way to ensure that your home can meet today’s standards. Ongoing sustainability is the smart thing to do for business, it’s the right thing to do for the community, it’s always the right decision for your home.
Green and sustainable products are not just words in our everyday vocabulary anymore. Since the 1960’s, annually more and more people across cultures are finding that they can make a difference. The same is true for many of today’s manufacturers of industrial plumbing parts. For instance, at Moen Incorporated, they have a major call to action. They have put the pedal to the metal and realize everything they do has a dramatic impact on future generations and must not be taken lightly. By working together — making energy-saving improvements along with incorporating sustainable practices into our everyday lives, everyone will save on energy costs, but also have a healthier place to live.
At Moen, they are committed to designing and producing water-efficient products, without sacrificing performance, which will make a big impact on the environment. After much research, they know that every drop matters and the importance of both water conservation and waste reduction. Their stand is to continue to raise the bar in this global initiative and further the company’s commitment to preserving our environment.
David Lingafelter, President of Moen Incorporated says this about their Eco-Performance by Moen brand of products
Our Promise is Every Drop Matters. Everything we do during our time on this planet impacts future generations. And that includes how we use our resources — particularly water. At Moen, we realize the importance of both water conservation and waste reduction. That’s why for the last quarter-century we’ve been working on programs to protect the environment and further our long-standing commitment, resulting in industry-leading sustainable practices.

Get Involved in Sustainability and Find Out How We Help
Moen’s partnerships with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), United States Green Building Council (USGBC), Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB®), underscores our commitment to the environment, and allow us to advance water-efficiency initiatives with consumers and the trade.
Moen recycles more than 90% of all metal, scrap, return product and manufacturing by-products (oils and solvents). In addition, all glass, toner and printer cartridges, cardboard, plastic bottles and aluminum cans are recycled in our facilities.
By 2009, Moen will reduce water consumption by reusing 70% of all water used in product testing. We’ve also installed water filtration systems in all of our facilities to reduce plastic bottle consumption and waste.
Paper and Packaging
In 2007, we recycled more than 7 million pounds of cardboard, more than 16 million pounds of metal and more than 4 million pounds of solid waste. Our packaging uses water-based inks and is made of recyclable materials. Even doing the little things — like setting our printers to default to 2-sided printing — has significantly lowered our paper use.
