Green Business Practices
Latex begins in nature, derived from a natural secretion found in 10 percent of all flowering plants. Because our flagship product is a natural one, it is fitting that environmentally responsible practices are built in to the way we manufacture. Kent Elastomer Products sustains, supports, and upholds a level of excellence in environmental stewardship.

This Helps Us Be More Efficient
Along our continuous improvement journey, sustainability became a focal point. We didn’t start out looking at sustainability as a means to reduce costs. Reducing our environmental footprint was the goal and the right thing to do!
The results are impressive! Since 2007, Kent Elastomer Products reduced water usage by 47% and electric by 10%, even though our company has grown by 30% during this time. Our dumpster pick-ups dropped from 804 per year to 182 per year, a 77% reduction.
Getting to this phase of our journey requires dedication, commitment, and participation from everyone to be conscious of our goals and to actively achieve them. Continuous improvement is a journey and not a destination. We will undoubtedly be better tomorrow than we are today.
