SUSTAIN YOUR BUDGET & ENVIRONMENT
Sustain Your Budget and the Environment With Our Help
Dave Long Protective Products has always been a green company. Awning manufacturers are pioneers in green thinking because awnings help reduce the amount of energy used to cool your homes and businesses. In fact, they're capable of cooling your environment a full 8 to 15 degrees!
On south-facing windows, they reduce solar heat gain up to 65% and 77% on west-facing windows. Awnings are even able to reduce air conditioning costs by as much as 25%!
Here at family owned and operated Dave Long Protective Products, we recycle as much as possible. All of our scrap steel and aluminum, cardboard packaging, fabric tubes, pop cans, and plastics are recycled.
Old fabrics and frames are recycled as well. Even our new fabric scraps are saved and used to make shopping bags and totes which we sell or donate to non-profit organizations. Scrap fabric is also used to make patches and repairs. The fabric from our old awnings is used as weed barriers under mulch or for farm or automotive uses.
We send very little to landfills which help us keep costs down and our impact on the environment to a minimum.
Additionally, Dave Long has instilled our company with the value of doing business and buying locally.
When it's not possible for us to acquire something locally, we buy products that are made in the USA as often as we can. It costs a little more but supporting our friends, neighbors, and fellow Americans across the country are important to us.
