SentrySafe Helps #KeepEarthSafe

SentrySafe works hard to come up with new ways to lower our impact on the environment. Tell us how you pitch in to help keep our earth safe on Twitter using #keepearthsafe for a chance to win a fire-resistant safe.  A winner will announced on Twitter Friday April 25th at 10 AM EST!

SentrySafe creates peace of mind around the world by providing people a reliable way to protect the things that matter most to them and their family. But there are things we wish we could protect that don’t really fit in a safe—like our environment. That’s why SentrySafe extends our commitment, not only in the products we make, but the way we make them.

You’ve probably heard that replacing the lights in your home with a more energy efficient light bulb can help you protect the environment, but you may wonder just what type of impact a little light can have? In our case, it’s a small change with a big impact on how much we affect the environment. When we installed LED lights in our warehouses and parking lots, we achieved a huge energy savings. Between these facilities, SentrySafe saved approximately 150,584 kwh per year and reduced an average of 150 kw a day with the new lighting and controls put in place. This will help SentrySafe to reduce carbon emissions by roughly 106 metric tons a year. That’s the same as taking 22 passenger vehicles off the road or the electricity used in about 16 homes in one year!

Last year, SentrySafe also reconfigured our chilled water system including the installation of a larger buffer tank. These changes saved more than 98,800 kwh and 15.8 kw and reduced approximately 69.7 metric tons of carbon emissions annually. That’s the same amount of emissions created by consuming 162 barrels of oil!

Recycling is also a huge part of the SentrySafe culture! It’s a clear solution for reducing our contribution to landfills and emissions created by incinerators. Last year SentrySafe recycled approximately 341,447 lbs. of plastic, 3,112,340 lbs. of metal, 303,440 lbs. of cardboard and 6,033 gallons of oil/coolant!

So now that you know some of the things we did last year to help protect our environment, we want to know what did you do? Join us on Twitter using #keepearthsafe to tell us one thing you did last year to help the environment for a chance to win a fire-resistant safe! We’ll announce a winner Friday April 25th at 10:00 AM EST

What do you keep safe?

SentrySafe offers a wide variety products to keep your important items protected from fire, flood and theft.  It’s a place to keep important documents, valuable memories and keepsakes protected and organized.  And even though I work here, I recently had a personal reminder of what that meant.  Two weeks away from our wedding, my fiancé and I were tearing apart the house looking for his birth certificate.  We recently purchased our home safe, but hadn’t quite gotten it out of the box yet.  It was a crazy moment, and we feared we wouldn’t be able to get a marriage license in time for our wedding.  Thankfully we found it!   As soon as it was discovered hidden under a depth of unimportant papers, I knew exactly where to put it next.  Now our Fire-Resistant Safe is full with important documents and photos!

But it got me thinking, what do my fellow employees keep safe?

“I started working at Sentry in August of 1985 in Customer Service, I quickly learned the value of Sentry safes with the testimonial letters and photos we would receive. I think to me among the most precious items that I store in my Sentry safe are our wedding photos proof book, the negatives from the photos through the years and most recently a digital copy of our photos.”  -Ellie Kelly, Sales Administration Manager

“I keep our wedding videos, and the photos of the birth of our 2 boys in our safe at home.  In the end everything is replaceable except our past’s most important memories..” – Anthony DeSalvo, Web Development Manager

“Art has been a lifelong passion of mine and I always have a little sketchbook with me. Over time I have filled several books with sketches of the places I have been and people I have met. They have become as much journals as sketchbooks with each drawing reminding me of a moment in time. I would hate for anything to happen to them so i keep them in a Guardian storage box.”  Josh Coon, Senior Brand Manager

“I would want to store my children’s pictures and my memory box in a SentrySafe.  My memory box contains special pictures of my father and Michael Jackson memorabilia.  Both MJ and my father died within three months of each other and it would mean a great deal to me if these items were preserved.”  -Veronica Dasher, Customer Service Supervisor

“One thing I would want to keep protected in my safe would be all of my son’s artwork.  His time, hard work and effort to create this art, in addition to all my important documents, are priceless to me.” –Joanne Straub, Marketing Production Manager


But now we want to know? What do you keep safe?
