Transitioning for A Better Tomorrow<br />Replacing Disposable Compressed Air Products with Eco-Friendly Alternatives<br />
Introduction<br />Our company was established in 1995<br />Top provider of computer services in U.S.A.<br />We provide on-site and depot based services<br />Customers from residential to commercial<br /><ul><li>We provide services to major corps
Many others enjoy our support services.</li></li></ul><li>A Necessary Step<br /><ul><li>Dust and dirt removal required upon service completion.
Dust causes heat insulation and damage to electrical circuitry
Dust “grabs” components and circuitry. </li></ul>Technician uses Disposable Compressed Air to remove dust. <br />Dust removal with compressed air only 80% effective.<br />
Problem with Process<br />Technician discards empty can into garbage.<br />104 Cans are used by each tech every year.<br />104 Cans X 90 Tech = 9,360 Cans<br />9,360 cans sent to landfill by our company.<br />Aluminum decomposition time = 200 to 500 years (Lawhorn 2008).<br />
Problem with Process (Cont’d)<br />Compressed air products contain harmful chemicals and are not accepted by most recycling centers.<br />
An Alternative to Self-Destruction<br />WD-40 Turbo Air Blower<br />Re-chargeable and re-usable air powered cleaning system<br />Capable of 30 MPH continuous blast of air.<br />Sold with delicate brush attachment and concentrated blast nozzle.<br />Three-Year Product Guarantee.<br />
Our Financial Impacts<br />Current Supply Costs<br />Each tech uses 104 cans of air. (Per Yr.)<br />90 techs x 104 cans (Per Yr.) = 9,360 Cans (per year)<br />Average cost per can = $6.65 Each<br />9,360 Cans X $6.65 = $62,244 Per Year (Compressed Air Supply Cost)<br />Three Year Supply Cost = $186,732<br />
Our Financial Impacts (Cont.)<br />Projected Supply Costs<br />Each tech utilizes one reusable air device. <br />One blower unit per tech. (90 Units)<br />Unit Retail Cost = $29.99 Each<br />90 units X $29.99 = $2,699.10 (Three Yr Cost)<br />One Year Supply Savings = $62,244<br />
Our Financial Impacts (Cont.)<br />Current and Projected Supply Costs<br />Three Year Supply Savings = $184,032.90<br />
Our Contribution to Earth<br />9,360 Cans diverted from landfills!<br />9,360 Cans containing traces of harmful chemicals are kept from landfills each year.<br />
No Time to Waste!<br />Approval Today… <br />=<br />…Results Tomorrow!<br />The Time to Act is NOW!<br />
