We are one of the CD manufacturing companies in California that offer green alternatives in CD manufacturing, DVD manufacturing, and printing. From the products and services we offer to our day-to-day operation, we make sure that we do our share to prevent the fast destruction of Mother Earth.
Here are some of our green efforts.
100% Wind Energy. We are one of the first media manufactures to provide the majority of manufacturing in 100% wind-driven facilities in all aspects of production.
Eco CD Cases. We have a big collection of eco-wallets, eco jewel cases, CD mailers, CD jackets, and other eco-friendly cases. Most of our cases are made of recycled material and are lighter compared to virgin CD/DVD cases.
Soy Based Inks. We use soy-based inks. Soy based inks are made of soy beans and are greener alternatives to the regular petroleum-based inks that most CD manufacturing companies use. They also have more vibrant colors compared to petroleum.
Online Project Management. No need to burn a copy of your files, no need to pay for shipping. We are currently working on our Project Management Site where customers can place their orders, upload artwork and music files directly to our server. Not only does this make things faster and easier for both Unified and the customers, it also minimizes carbon footprint and shipping costs.
Local Plants. Unified Manufacturing is based in California but it has plenty of other plants in other states across America. This minimizes carbon footprint since customers who want to check actual production, or who wants to submit requirements directly, need not travel all the way to the head plant. Aside from that, it also minimizes shipping fee and supports the local community.
Give-back projects. This may not be part of the green movement but it is worth mentioning here. In 2011, we will give a portion of our profits to hardworking non-profit organizations to help local communities and to help the environment thrive. When you create your order, you will be asked to choose from a list of 100 or so charity institutions.
