Green Initiatives

Giambri's Quality Sweets has taken the intiative to operate in a more environmentally conscious way to keep our planet beautiful for generations to come. We have and will continue to take steps toward sustainability.

  • Our largest "green" project was the installation of 108 solar panels on the roof of our factory to provide 40% of our energy usage.

  • By generating our own clean energy from these panels, we will save an estimated 52,727 lbs. of CO2, and 19,035 gallons of water every year. Making our own power is also equivalent to removing 57 cars from the highway.

  • When shipping our candy around the world, Giambri's uses cartons that meet the responsible fiber sourcing requirements of the SFI Standard, Annex 1, which means our supplier must comply with all applicable laws to protect the environment, workers, and local communities.

  • Each year, we recycle more than 2 tons of cardboard, which can save an estimated 34 trees, 4 barrels of oil, 14,000 gallons of water, and 8,000 kWh of electricity - enough energy to power the average American home for 8 months.

  • Our office floor is made of 74% recycled wood from sustainable sources.

  • Giambri's uses printing companies that incorporate the use of eco-friendly inks and solvents which are extremely beneficial during the paper recycling process since removing soy ink stains from paper is much easier than other artificial inks. The waste produced by soy inks does not pose any threat to the environment and can be easily treated using modern methods.

    Here are a few ways for you to live green (and save money!):

  • Shut down appliances and devices like computers to save energy and cut down on energy bills.

  • Switch to compact fluorescent light bulbs to save energy and money and cut down on waste.

  • Adjust your thermostat by just one or two degrees to reduce your energy use. And make sure window and door seals are tight in cold months.

  • Walk or bike to and from work, school, and home. Public transportation is another great way to get where you're going!

  • Carpool and visit multiple destinations whenever you drive.
