We're Green Behind the Scenes

Everything Else

There's a lot of buzz about recycled art these days. At Delphi, we not only promotes "green" art, we also strive to run a green business. Here's what we're doing...

Delphi uses overrun boxes whenever possible instead of official Delphi boxes.

We use 100% recycled biodegradable packaging peanuts. They are literally and figuratively green. (Also our bubble wrapping is both figuratively and literally green).

Bring Us Your Peanuts


We are also a recycling center in Lansing for used packaging peanuts. People in the community can drop off boxes or bags of peanuts and well reuse them. For recycling centers near you, call the peanut hotline at 800-828-2214 or visit http://www.loosefillpackaging.com/

We use paper wrapping when possible. We even save our newspapers to use as wrapping!

We have a dumpster just for recycled cardboard

We recycle plastic and aluminum cans. Large bins are set up in both break rooms and by the snack machine.

We are very conscious of our power use. Lights in the restrooms, break room, and classrooms are motion activated. We turn off office computers and lights at the end of the day.

We print our catalogs on PEFC recycled paper and use soy ink.

Tell us how you recycle. If you run a green art glass business, drop us a note at [email protected] We might just feature you here on our blog!
