CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Matthew 25: Ministries, a top-ranked international humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization headquartered in Cincinnati, OH, has recognized UMF Corporation, a manufacturer and innovator of infection prevention products, with its Green Giving Partner Seal.
“Our goal is to consider the effects on the environment in everything we do”
This seal acknowledges corporate donors that epitomize responsible corporate environmental stewardship through the Green Giving program. These organizations work with Matthew 25: Ministries to rescue, recycle, reuse and repurpose millions of pounds of excess products, saving these products from the landfill, protecting the environment and helping millions of people throughout the United States and worldwide each year.
“Our goal is to consider the effects on the environment in everything we do,” said George Clarke, CEO of UMF Corporation. “Our partnership with Matthew 25: Ministries supports us in these efforts as we pursue our objective of ‘Cleaning up the Environment One Room at a Time’ - and allows us to touch the lives of countless people worldwide.”
Commercial and industrial waste is a significant portion of solid waste. American industrial facilities generate and dispose of approximately 7.6 billion tons of industrial solid waste each year, according to the EPA. Reducing, reusing, recycling and repurposing excess products can have an enormous impact on our environment. Matthew 25: Ministries rescues and reuses approximately 15 million pounds of corporate excess products a year.
These products are evaluated, categorized and processed at Matthew 25: Ministries’ 132,000-square-foot facility in Cincinnati, OH and are then redistributed to partner organizations throughout the United States and internationally. Responsibly recycled products from corporate donors like UMF Corporation impact the lives of more than 16 million people each year.
Matthew 25: Ministries has developed the Green Giving Guidelines as a way of acknowledging these product donors for their exceptional level of corporate responsibility. Corporate donors like UMF Corporation that meet the standards of the Green Giving Guidelines receive a display certificate and permission to display the Green Giving Seal.
The Green Giving Guidelines are designed to promote corporate environmental responsibility, values and attitudes; acknowledge participating corporations’ willingness to act responsibly and applaud the enormous impact their actions have on the environment and on people in need.
