We received feedback from customers that they The ideallygreen Catalogwanted to see all of our green products in one place so, to meet that need, we developed a catalog! I am excited to announce that theSustainability Department has recently released our first ever comprehensive green catalog! Printed on Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified paper, our ideallygreenSMCatalog Volume 1 showcases products from our expansive line of more than 1,600 environmentally preferable products. The catalog provides a one-stop shop for products that are energy efficient, support water conservation, help reduce waste, improve indoor air quality, or offer a solution for easily disposing hazardous materials.

Many of the products highlighted in the ideallygreen Catalog comply with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) comprehensive procurement guidelines or are qualified by reputable third-party agencies. We have a large selection of WaterSense®, ENERGY STAR®, Design for the Environment, Green SealTM, FloorScore®, Carpet and Rug InstituteTM, and EcoLogoTM products that reduce your impact on the environment and help meet your sustainability goals.

My hope is that you will use this as a resource and starting place when looking for products and green solutions. If you haven’t seen the virtual catalog you can view it here, or ask your local field account representative for a hard copy.

In addition to launching this catalog, we have made it easier to find ideallygreen products on our website. Now, all you have to do is search for “ideallygreen” and you get a complete list of our products, sorted by product category.

We also launched two great new tools on the hdsupplysolutions.com lighting page: the Energy Savings Calculator and the Bulb Cross-Reference.

The Energy Savings Calculator is a great tool to find efficient upgrades to the light bulbs you currently use. The best part is, unlike most lighting calculators out there, ours will let you choose what kind of bulb upgrade you want to make. If you have a 60W standard incandescent bulb, it will let you select whether you want to upgrade to compact fluorescent lighting (CFL), an LED, or even a halogen bulb. Once you select the kind of replacement bulb, you can enter your own energy rate, hours it’s on per day, number of light fixtures at the property, and how many bulbs are used per fixture (or just use the default figures given). The calculator will then display the estimated total annual savings by upgrading to the efficient bulb you choose. I have already heard great reviews from some of our customers, who are excited to have a dynamic calculator that shows their money savings.

 

The Bulb Cross-Reference tool helps you find the part number for the exact bulb that you previously purchased. All you have to do is type in the manufacturer number on the bulb and the calculator will show the bulb, bulb description, and HD Supply part number. Super easy.

So, we are making big strides here in the Sustainability Department. Your feedback helps us provide green products and practices that better serve your needs… so let us know what you think of the new ideallygreen Catalog and online tools!
