Mannatech Goes 'Green' and Supports Local Earth Day Celebrations

Dallas-area nutritional supplements company reduces its carbon footprint

COPPELL, Texas, April 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Eleven hours a day, six days a week, Mannatech, Incorporated, (Nasdaq: MTEX) locally packs and ships its nutritional supplements and skin care products to consumers throughout the United States and Canada. Mannatech uses more than 20 tons of packaging monthly sending products throughout North America, where a majority of the company's 575,000 independent Associates and Members live.

Mannatech began using recycled corrugated boxes in November 2007. Annually, this move will save an estimated 4,000 trees, 980,000 gallons of fresh water, 735,000 kilowatt hours of energy and 610 cubic yards of landfill space -- resources that would have been used to make non-recycled boxing.

"As a company that values Earth's natural resources, Mannatech is committed to reducing its carbon footprint by 'going green.' More importantly, our employees are delighted to do what they can to help conserve resources," said company Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President Terry O'Day. "We are continually looking for ways to conserve energy and reduce waste, and we appreciate the opportunity to partner with our local community to keep our environment beautiful."

In addition to using recycled boxing, Mannatech also has replaced its non-biodegradable plastic packing cushions with paper packing materials made from post-consumer fiber. The company recycles most of the paper and plastic waste generated by its 70,000-square-foot distribution center. Last year, Mannatech replaced the metal halide lighting in the distribution center with 110 lamp fixtures that burn with new fluorescent technology that uses half the watt
