Malouf honored with Green Business Award
January 18, 2016,
Logan, Utah – Malouf, an upscale bedding accessories manufacturer, received a 2015 Green Business Award for Corporate Excellence from Utah Business magazine.
Utah Business honored 16 companies or individuals for their commitment to practicing sustainability, conservation or eco-friendly innovations.
In terms of work environment, Malouf provides a private chef who makes daily employee lunches from the company’s on-site garden and other local, sustainable foods. Malouf has twice won—and remains the only winner—of the local Bike to Work Day competition.
Recently, Malouf announced it flipped the switch on a large solar panel system atop the roof of its new headquarters. Combined with several electric car charging stations, the company expects the building will have a low environmental impact by being 80% to 100% off the grid.
Malouf also creates environmentally responsible products, key among them sheets, protectors and pillows integrated with Tencel, a soft fabric deriving from raw wood pulp in an award-winning closed loop process.
Malouf’s Tencel products will be on display at the upcoming Las Vegas Market in C1540 – where its in-house chef will be preparing food for visitors.
