Cedar Rapids Company Going Green
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
One of the top tier wholesale distributors for Anheuser-Busch says it is committed to sustainable business practices. 7G Distributing LLC, located at 9925 Sixth Street in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, recently had a 22.6 kilowatt solar system installed on its warehouse facility.
"Installing solar was a logical next step in our efforts to improve our environmental performance," said Laurie Konecny, Corporate Communications Director at 7G. "We already took steps to be more energy efficient with our facility lighting, implemented aggressive recycling programs for cardboard, plastics and aluminums, and started using GPS systems on our delivery trucks to promote safety and fuel economy. We're always looking for what 'more' we can do to reduce our operational expenses and be good stewards in our community."
