Malouf honored with Green Business Award

Awarded for Corporate Excellence by Utah Business

MaloufLogan, 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.

“It’s great and very enabling what technology advancements are made available for people and companies like us,” said Sam Malouf, ceo. “It’s getting easier to pursue the green initiative.”

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.
