Fabrica has instituted an extensive recycling program throughout our facility, diverting tens of thousands of pounds of waste from landfills every year.
Fabrica partners with the Orange County Water District’s Green Acres Project, a water recycling effort that provides reclaimed or “gray water” for widespread regional landscape irrigation projects, such as schools, parks, golf courses, as well as some industrial uses. Every gallon of reclaimed water Fabrica uses saves a gallon of fresh water for drinking or other purposes. Fabrica makes use of reclaimed water in the carpet manufacturing process, and wastewater is used to cool large pieces of equipment. Continued process improvement and conservation efforts have significantly reduced Fabrica’s annual water consumption.
Using a combination of conservation techniques and alternative energy sources, Fabrica has successfully lowered energy use levels, while at the same time increasing production capacities.
Since 1993, Fabrica has participated in Southern California Edison’s Interruptible program, which means Fabrica agrees to stop production and reduce to under 100KW during any time there is an electrical power shortage.
As a recipient of the prestigious WRAP Award from the California Waste Reduction Awards Program, Fabrica is recognized as an outstanding business leader for our implementation of waste reduction efforts. WRAP awards are administered by the California Integrated Waste Management Board.
