Date:4/20/2009

Commitment to 'green' activities at Baxa Corporation celebrates Earth Day while providing reduced costs and workplace benefits.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Baxa Corporation announces the launch of its 'ecological' program to encourage smart use of natural resources. Joining the 'green generation,' Baxa has put in place actions to celebrate Earth Day 2009 and create meaningful environmental change. Historically, Baxa has chosen product designs and raw materials that reduce waste and improve patient safety and minimize environmental impact. More recently, the company has introduced specific initiatives for reducing its environmental impact and advancing its environmental stewardship.

As part of its 'ecological' effort, Baxa discontinued the use of Styrofoam(TM) and paper cups for its associates - issuing reusable hot and cold cups for use during work hours. Extensive on-site recycling includes not only paper, plastic and metal components, but computer and electronics and batteries. Aside from providing community service, 'green' initiatives at the company have resulted in significant environmental savings.

According to data provided by Waste Management, the company's waste and recycling hauler, Baxa recycling efforts included 80.3 tons of recycled paper and cardboard and resulted in the following benefits for 2008:

  • 37,174 gallons of oil saved
  • 1,927 gallons of gasoline saved
  • 562,030 gallons of water saved
