LD Products Looks to Be Recognized for "Green" Building Standards as Much as "Green" Ink Cartridges
LONG BEACH, Calif., May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- While LDProducts.com is home to some of the Internet's best deals on ink with their environmentally friendly remanufactured ink cartridges, it is the building that they operate from which has been getting the most attention of late. Company founder Aaron Leon has been giving increasingly frequent presentations not about his company's record-breaking revenue growth during the last few years, but about the groundbreaking real estate expansion of the last few months. Through the success of their green business model of selling cleaned, repaired, and refilled products like HP printer ink cartridges at significant savings, Leon's LD Products was in a position to build one of the most "green" buildings in the state of California. The Douglas Park building which houses the company's corporate offices, warehouse, and retail store is expected to receive recognition through the US Green Building Council with an award of LEED Platinum status, the highest ranking in environmental design.
This commitment to utilizing green building technology has garnered some attention among members of the local business community as well. For many, the focus is on the strong bottom-line advantage of using 42% less potable water and 47% less energy in a business' headquarters. Each week, LD Products opens its doors to executives, investors, and neighboring businesses, even those that are unrelated to the toner or ink cartridge industry. They come for tours and to have questions answered about the many aspects of the state-of-art construction. With all of the excitement surrounding the 110,000-square-foot environmental design, the construction project developers are seizing the opportunity to attract more businesses to the newly developed Long Beach site. LD Products, however, is using the publicity to continue to shine a light on the benefits of their "green policy" when it comes to ink cartridges. Each remanufactured ink cartridge that the company sells saves 4 to 6 ounces of oil that would have been used to make new cartridges by manufacturers like Canon or HP. Printer ink has the potential, in this way, to save both monetary and environmental resources and LD Products would like to be well-known for both.
"We knew from the beginning that we save our customers a lot of money when we recycle materials to make low-cost, high-quality products. So it made a lot of sense to apply that principle of environmental conservation to the building as well," said warehouse manager Chris Ferrer.
