Abt Electronics eliminated its paper catalogs, and now relies primarily on email and its Web site, Abt.com. The company creates its own displays from reused and recycled materials.

The eco-friendly company's fleet of delivery and service vehicles tops out at over 200. Out of those vehicles, over 60 use Bio-Fuel.

"I make sure that all of the new gas vehicles being added to the fleet are E85-ready," said Charles Metoyer, director of fleet operations. "Abt's delivery trucks are even cleaned with recycled water."

Abt Electronics has undertaken a mission to teach Americans the financial value in an environmental investment.
