Environmental Statement

Amigo is proud to be a Green Certified Business by the Institute for Green Certification. We are committed to integrity in every aspect of our business, which includes instilling a strong sense of environmental responsibility as a corporate value. From recycling to reusing to reducing – awareness and action are important throughout our business as we work to fulfill and sustain our environmental commitment.

All of Amigo’s products are completely recyclable and recycling plays a large role inside our corporate headquarters. Paper, cardboard, plastics, metals and glass are recycled throughout every department. While recycling is critical, reusing items  is important as well because they do not need to be processed beforehand. Amigo’s shipping department reuses packing material with inbound shipment on outgoing product shipments.

Environmental awareness has been, and will always be, a priority as we hold a strong regard for our community and its future.
