Why Green

Why is JadeMask Green?

In general, JadeMask’s purchase of recycled plastics supports many local, regional and national plastic recycling programs. Use of recycled content lowers overall lifecycle cost, saves energy, reduces greenhouse gases, reduces waste, conserves resources for the future and creates jobs. Building with the environment in mind is more important than ever. When you choose JadeMask decking and railing, you’ll take comfort knowing that you are getting the highest quality product with a number of environmental advantages. Through efficient use of recycled materials, JadeMask has built its business on making superior products with lower environmental impacts.

  • JadeMask uses high density polyethylene(HDPE), a non-toxic plastic.
  • Is made with recycled bamboo fiber and recycled polyethylene plastic(100% total recycled content) from discarded items such as plastic jugs and bags, reducing waste going to landfills.
  • Is a durable, long-lasting alternative to conventional decking materials.
  • Do not require paint or stains, therefore eliminating pollutants associated with those types of products.
  • Bamboo fibers / bamboo flours / bamboo powders are mainly from JadeMask Flooring Products Group and other bamboo flooring manufacturers in the process of producing bamboo flooring and other bamboo products.
  • JadeMask decking and accessories are made with: 30% Post-consumer recycled content, 70% Pre-consumer recycled content. That is to say 100% total recycled content.
  • JadeMask conserves resources for the future.
  • No new trees or bamboo are cut down to make JadeMask Decking.
  • JadeMask process stops over 360 million pounds of trash from entering landfills every year – that is 40 football fields of trash, each stacked 10 ft. high.
  • JadeMask saves over 6 trillion BTUs of energy per year.
  • JadeMask is concerned with skyrocketing gas prices as much as you. JadeMask process saves 1.5 million gallons a year.
  • Not only does a 12´ x 12´ JadeMask deck save 100 gallons of gas, but it also reduces greenhouse gas by 600 lbs. CO2 equivalent.
  • The plastic and bamboo waste recycles annually is comparable to taking 60,000 vehicles off the road.

JadeMask bamboo fibers / bamboo flours / bamboo powders are mainly from the following production process when bamboo flooring manufacturers are producing bamboo flooring and other bamboo products: what goes into JadeMask Decking?

All the ingredients JadeMask uses are being reused and the process to make them is also environmentally responsible. JadeMask is made from reclaimed plastic and bamboo - materials that would otherwise go unused in landfills. JadeMask offers the perfect balance of quality and sustainability. More than millions pounds of product scrap is reclaimed into our manufacturing process each year, which saves even more bamboo and plastic waste from reaching landfills. Our bamboo flour is recycled from the bambooworking industry and keeps more than 100 million pounds of bamboo waste out of landfills each year and no trees / bamboo are cut down for the purpose of making JadeMask products.

JadeMask manufacturing process is as green as the final product. JadeMask acts responsibility in the daily operations and lives by a "clean manufacturing" motto to recycle and reduce waste in the plant. Factory run-off/refuse is recycled back into the manufacturing line. JadeMask product cartons are made with 40% recycled material fibers. The water in our manufacturing facilities is recycled using a closed loop water system. Reusing the water in JadeMask plants saves over 100,000 gallons every day. We capture the bamboo flour dust that is vented during manufacturing and recycle it back into our process. JadeMask uses natural light and energy-efficient bulbs to save energy. JadeMask repairs and reuses composite pallets to prevent throwing them away.

JadeMask regularly seeks out third-party audits to make sure we’re continuously improving our green practices while meeting all environmental, health and safety guidelines and regulations.

Do not need to pay a premium to be environmentally responsible. Typically eco-friendly products have been comparatively expensive to their non-eco alternatives. Particularly in the building industry, eco-products have been perceived to lack in function, value and quality… But JadeMask products are affordable to most, JadeMask makes a long term impact by providing sustainable solutions.
