Valley Box Company incorporates sustainable business practices into our operations by using Dunn & Edwards paints, considered one of the most environmentally-friendly paint manufacturers and an industry leader in eco-efficient principles. Learn more about their Greener by Design philosophy.

For example, throughout D&E operations the company focuses on initiatives such as:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Waste minimization
  • Recycling
  • Emissions reduction
  • Health and safety protection.

Dunn-Edwards eco-efficient principles:

  • 1984- D&E removes EG (a hazardous air pollutant and toxic air contaminant) from its paint formulas, and remains the only major manufacturer to have done so.
  • 1970s- D&E reformulates all water-based paints to eliminate the use of biocides containing mercury — long before the U.S. EPA imposed a limited ban in 1990.
  • 1980s- D&E replaces ethylene glycol (a toxic solvent) with safer, non-toxic, FDA-approved propylene glycol.
