Kalaty Rug Corp. Adds Solar Electrical System at Headquarters, Warehouse

HICKSVILLE, N.Y. - Kalaty Rug Corporation has added an eco friendly solar electrical system to its headquarters and warehouse here.
     "We feel a responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint as a business," said Farshad Kalaty, company spokesman. "After careful study and consideration, we have invested in a photovoltaic solar electrical system to power our warehouse."
     "We feel it is important to do our part for the environment," Kalaty continued. "With this new solar electrical system in place, we are dramatically reducing the amount of ‘off-the grid' electrical energy we consume each year."
     According to Kalaty, the new solar power system will save the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent of driving 72,500 miles in the average car per year. From another perspective, the offset in emissions equals planting 825 trees per year.
     Other green initiatives undertaken by Kalaty Rug Corporation include the sole use of natural fibers like wool, cotton and bamboo silk in its rugs, according to the company. And the rug source's recently introduced paperless invoicing option for customers.
