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.

"Our own generator room has paid for itself in four years," said Mike Abt. "The economy has helped America realize that by purchasing something green, they can save money in the end."

Abt Electronics is setting a high standard for businesses across America. Going green saves their company and their customer's money, while leaving the environment in a better state.
