and get Kermit the Frog named Director of the EPA
Do you think the Federal Government is serious about going GREEN? In 2007, the President of the United States had a high level meeting with Kermit the Frog. Kermit’s advice…… it may not be easy “being” Green, but it can be easy “going” Green. As such, the President issued Executive Order 13423 entitled “Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy and Transportation Management”. The goal was to attain a 16% improvement in energy, greenhouse gasses and environmentally preferable sources by 2015.
In addition to improving energy efficiency and renewable sources of energy, the Executive Order states that in the “acquisitions of goods and services, use of sustainable environmental practices, including acquisition of biobased, environmentally preferable, energy-efficient, and recycled-content products” is preferred.
With thousands of Paper Shredders in use throughout the Federal Government, one way to help reach the goals established by the President is to lubricate your paper shredder with BioBased Lubricating Shredder Oil. This lubricating paper shredder oil not only matches the effectiveness of high viscosity petroleum based shredder oil, but since it is made from vegetable and/or botanical renewal sources, it meets the demands mandated by the Government.
How can I meet the Executive Order and help get Kermit promoted to Director of EPA?
Good Question! As a primary supplier of high quality shredders to both the Federal Govt. and Commercial sector, SEM now offers ECO-FRIENDLY Lubricating Shredder Oil to support shredders that come with or without automatic oilers. Our new ECO friendly, BioBased Lubricants come in a case of 4 gallons for use on Paper Shredders with automatic oilers like the SEM Model 244/4 and/or Vegetable Based Oil “Sheets” which come in packs of 10 sheets for manually lubricated Optical Media shredders without auto oilers like the SEM Model 0202 OMD.
The IMPACT to our environment and what this means for Kermit!
Let’s do the math! A medium volume paper shredder with a built-in automatic oiler consumes approximately 6 gallons of petroleum based shredder oil per year. As a very conservative estimate, there are at least 100,000 paper shredders deployed throughout the Federal Government. That’s 600,000 gallons of petroleum based shredder oil consumed per year. What if all that shredder oil was made from petroleum free, bio-degradable, eco-friendly lubricants made from botanical renewable resources…..and just imagine if Private Industry adopted the President’s mandate as well…….Not only would they be helping out the environment……….Kermit would no longer be just a trusted adviser…….he would easily be appointed Director of the EPA.
The formula to get Kermit the job is simple:
