    A Vision for the Future of Public Libraries

Whitehots' Environmental Policy

Protecting the world’s environment and the environment in our clients’ libraries

Environmental responsibility is growing at Whitehots. We focus on a triple bottom line of financial, social, and environmental. We see a megatrend in businesses and governments towards responsible governance in this area.

One of our major initiatives includes shipping books to libraries in re-usable plastic cartons. For all shipments within the Greater Toronto Area, libraries can return the totes to Whitehots to be reused.

Battling the issue of bed bugs in public libraries

We also don’t re-use cardboard cartons or packing paper, and we eliminate them from our premises quickly to reduce the chances of transmitting bed bugs, a problem more libraries are facing.

Learn more about our pest control program or contact us for general inquiries.

 

 

Whitehots Green Team

It’s a new and exciting time for our Green Team!  We are hard at work looking at opportunities to give back to our environment and reduce our carbon footprint.

Our first initiative for 2015 is to remove all Styrofoam coffee cups from our facility – replacing them with a personalized Whitehots Logo Coffee mug for each Whitehots employee!  

In addition to looking for ways to recycle – reduce and reuse within our own facility – we are looking at ways we as a team can give back to our environment through community projects such as “Tree planting” and “Adopt a stream” type programs.
