SALT LAKE CITY, July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA), a global nutritional company, today announced that it has completed its most recent xeriscaping project along the east side of international headquarters, in Salt Lake City. To date, more than 89 percent of the company's landscape has been replaced with rocks, mulch, trees, and low-water plants.
"Over the past six years, we have been able to save an average of 625,000 gallons of water each year and with our newest xeriscape expansion, we hope to conserve nearly a million gallons a year," said USANA Green Coordinator, Jeff Robertson. "I'm glad to be a member of a company that takes the well-being of the environment seriously and am honored to be apart of USANA's green program."
In addition to xeriscaping its surrounding property, USANA has reduced the amount of energy it uses each year by switching over to motion-sensored lights and energy-conserving light bulbs, offsetting 100 percent of the electricity used in its North America offices with renewable energy, collected from windmills and onsite solar panels, and has reduced its use of paper by nearly 50 percent by switching to electronic paystubs.
USANA is an EPA WasteWise member, an EPA Green Power Partner, and is one of 235 organizations to become founding members of the Climate Registry. As a result of their efforts the company has reduced emissions by more than one-third and has earned the title of Clean Utah Partner.
