Dee Cee Laboratories is committed to doing it’s part to live by the matra our founder, Henry F. Hester, D.C., believed in, which is that we are only caretakers of the earth, not the owners. In order to embrace this matra, Dee Cee committed itself to protecting and caring for it’s part here in the state of Tennessee. To achieve this goal, Dee Cee Implemented a few things:
Solar Powered Facility
First, Dee Cee has installed one of the largest solar panel systems in the state of Tennessee. It produces clean energy from the sun to power our office complex and manufacturing facility.
In addition, all recyclable materials are totally recycled. All pull tabs are removed and specifically donated to the Ronald McDonald Charities, to help families with critically ill children, to be at their side during trying times. An estimated 35 billion aluminum cans are thrown away every year. Recycled aluminum cans save an estimated 95% of the energy it takes to produce it initially.
According to recycling experts, every ton of paper that is recycled saves:
- 17 trees
- 275 lbs. of sulfur
- 9,000 lbs of steam
- 60,000 gallons of water
- 225 kilowatt hours of electricity
- 3.3 cubic yards of landfill
It takes on average an estimated 650 plus years for a plastic bottle to decompose, yet in the US we only recycle an estimated 34% of them.
The way Dee Cee sees it is that each and every one of us needs to care a little more about how we are treating the little corner of the earth where we live. Not just for us, but for future generations that follow.
Dee Cee Laboratories is 100% committed, and are doing their part to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
NOW, because we know that we are only caretakers of the earth . . . Not the owners. . . .We hope you agree.
That's our thoughts... we just thought you should know.
