||Wind energy is the fastest growing source of electricity in the North America. For example the purchase of 18 million kilowatt-hours of wind energy serves to avoid the release of approximately 25,056,000 pounds of carbon dioxide, the leading greenhouse gas. The environmental benefit compares to not taking nearly 10,000 drives between Los Angeles and New York City. Wind Power products are made with 100% wind power which is secured through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates. Green energy providers are credited with one REC for every 1,000 kWh of 1MWh of electricity they produce. The green energy is then fed into the electrical grid and the REC can then be sold on the open market.Purchases REC’s which are certified by Green-e, a program administered by the not-for-profit Center for Resource Solutions are based in San Francisco, California.
Envelopes made with wind power provide our customers with the ability to promote their environmental platform through the use of products made with renewable energy. Customers wishing to demonstrate this outwardly can opt to have the National Envelope “Made with 100% Wind Power” logo printed on each envelope or on the box and/or carton label.
Wind power envelopes and products are considered beneficial for the environment because they are make from clean, renewable energy, Wind turbines need no fuel for operation and do not produce carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, mercury, particulates, or any other type of air pollution as do fossil fuel power sources.
