Every day is Earth Day at Danforth!
Danforth has been an environmental leader since the day we were founded in 1975. We have achieved essentially zero metal waste in our workshop, reusing every last metal shaving and splattered drop of liquid metal. When we built our solar farm, we became the world’s first 100% solar-powered pewter workshop (as far as we know). Probably biggest of all, we have committed to a goal of zero fossil fuel use.
Our solar farm consists of 12 panels
and sits below the mighty Snake Mountain.
Danforth was a founding member of Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, and has taken an active role in lobbying for environmental legislation (among other legislation and policies that reflect our human values). Most recently, we co-authored a proposal called The ESSEX Plan to price carbon pollution in Vermont, and the state legislature agreed to fund a study of the plan. Meanwhile, we’re doing our part, generating about twice as much clean electricity as we use, which means there’s extra clean power for our friends at Gardener’s Supply to use.
