How We Think Green
Droll Yankees manufactures and markets quality bird feeders that carry a Lifetime Warranty against squirrel damage and manufacturing defects. Our products are sustainable because they are not “throw-away” items; they are designed to last for many years. Compare Droll Yankees' quality with that of most other feeders on the market that last only a season or two, and quickly find their way to the landfill. For each Droll Yankees feeder purchased, the landfills are free of 5 to 10 (maybe more) "junk feeders." We’ve heard from many customers whose Droll Yankees feeders have been in use for 20 years or more. And the number of consumers with Droll Yankees feeders in service for more than 10 years are too numerous to count. That’s sustainability in action!
Did You Know...?
All our feeder parts are available for sale! Consumers can buy only the parts they need from us to restore their feeders to like-new condition and use them for many more years.
Recycling – both entering and leaving our facility
We also recycle the corrugated cardboard that we receive components in, and our used office paper. Other packing materials, such as plastic bags, that protect parts on their way to us, are reused on assembled feeders (both feeders and accessories) to protect them on their way to you. In our facility, we use paper towels and toilet tissue made from recycled paper. Every effort helps.
Smaller, Smarter Packaging
We also use a shrink-wrap packaging machine. Plastic packaging, as compared to paper packaging, uses far fewer natural resources to manufacture and is yet another way of lowering our carbon footprint.
Our conservation efforts go beyond the workplace. We’re working on helping all our employees become more aware and conscientious about the environment and protecting our world and its resources. In the lunchroom, cans and bottles are put aside for recycling. At home, we’re just about ready to install photovoltaic panels to heat our domestic hot water. We recycle paper, plastics, and glass, keep our thermostats at 62° and wear sweaters, and use “green” shopping bags. In all we do, we try to be more conscious of ways we can reduce consumption of our natural resources.
