June 17, 2008: Samson Carts® Leads The Way in Material Handling Industry.

Samson Carts®, the patented folding six-shelf library/file cart once again leads the material handling industry by becoming the first and only certified sustainable (green) product.  Samson Carts was designed to be a sustainable product to replace the plywood and painted metal material handling carts found in many industries such as moving, libraries and material handling. 

Samson Carts’ award comes after an eight-month study of its sustainable design for the environment (DfE). MBDC awards Cradle to Cradle Certification only after a rigorous evaluation process that considers material safety and reusability, water and energy consumption, pollution and social equity.  Press Release >>

March, 2008: Samson Carts® Passes GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Tests!

 

In its commitment to healthy indoor environments Samson Carts recently underwent rigorous testing for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and it was determined that Samson Carts meets acceptable IAQ criteria!  for low-emitting VOC, contributing to a healthier environment for offices, schools, and healthcare facilities. 

Samson Carts is the world's first material handling product to achieve this distinction.

The testing included total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) and individual volatile organic compounds (VOCs) according to ASTM Standard D 5116-06, the United States Environmental Protection Agency USEPA IP-6A, and ASTM D 6670-01.

The test results indicate how the product’s emissions compare to currently available GREENGUARD emission standards of the SOW, World Health Organization (WHO), and the German Federal Environmental Agency (Blue Angel Programs).

The product is not yet certified by The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI), but the favorable test results indicate that Samson Carts is low emitting and should be considered for certification.

Samson Carts is currently undergoing additional rigorous testing and auditing for environmental and social accountability.

At Samson Carts we continually review the way we conduct business in the light of changes in the social, environmental and economic systems within which we operate, and the rapid internationalization of business and corporate social responsibility. Accordingly, we continue to review and validate our design criteria, operational paradigms and our impact on world systems. 

Today we are very proud of our progress.  The successful IAQ testing and the recent adoption of the Social Accountability International SA8000 standard are two significant milestones in our mission to be recognized as a designer and manufacturer of truly global products.
