Why White Roofs
President John F. Kennedy, September 25, 1963
"Our primary task now is to increase our understanding of our environment to a point where we can enjoy it without defacing it, use its bounty without detracting permanently from its value, and, above all, maintain a living balance between man's actions and nature's reactions." JFK at Univ. of Wyoming, September 25, 1963. continue reading

Going Green Globally
Reducing Carbon Footprint
Check out http://350.org a world wide organization that is getting to work on global climate change at the grass roots level. They are coordinating over 5,450 events in more than 75 countries scheduled for 10/10/10 to bring attention to sustainable solutions for our planet in local communities. Do you have an event scheduled? Are you doing something everyday to help reduce carbon footprint? Tell them and share it with us. In 2009, CNN called the 350.org events the most widespread day of political action in history -- with over 5,000 events in 181 actions! This year it will be even bigger – if we all participate!
Scientists have identified 350 ppm (parts per million) as the safe upper limit level for CO2 in our atmosphere. At Cardinal we’re supporting 350.org by reducing our Carbon Footprint everyday through the use of solar systems, cool roofs, eco-friendly windows and much more. Solar power not only runs our factory, offices and distribution centers, it safely air conditions our factory for the comfort and performance of our employees, reduces our carbon footprint and provides excess power to the grid as a daily event.
In every corner of the globe, 350.org is helping people and businesses implement solutions to the climate crisis: from solar panels to community gardens; from wind turbines to bike workshops. Check out the things you can do.
At Cardinal we just added the solar system to our new 70,000 sq ft green building at 766 S. Ayon Avenue. It doesn’t show up on Google Earth yet, but you can see the solar system on our manufacturing building next door at 710 S. Ayon Ave. Azusa, CA 91702
At Cardinal Pet Care and Cardinal Laboratories, We're getting to work--what about you? 350.org is a grassroots campaign that is mobilizing a global movement to stop the worst of the climate crisis. It’s as simple as planting a garden, creating a compost pile or riding your bike to work.
Join Cardinal and thousands of people like you who each make a difference one step at a time or help organize events for their communities. What do you do? Tell us we’ll post it. And be sure to go to 350.org and tell the world what you’re doing.
350.org stands for the safe limit of 350ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere. PPM also stands for their "People-Powered-Movement." 350.org holds business and community leaders accountable to the latest climate science. They want all of us to start the global transformation we so desperately need. We’re proud that the leader of our company, Tony de Vos, has committed his resources to making a difference and being a leader in the green movement in our city.
Our factory uses water to make many liquids, crèmes, lotions and gels that are used in products for beauty, bath, personal care, dental, liquid supplements, household and industrial cleaners and in pet products. We reclaim and reuse gray water for our landscaping. This 350 “event” goes on at Cardinal Laboratories everyday.
Reducing carbon footprint at a business encompasses changing many things. Our factory was completely torn apart last year and every motor, switch, electric panel, wire and much more was replaced with high efficiency equipment to help reduce our carbon footprint.
Visit 350.org again today and check out the powerful effect of the activities going on today in over 117 countries that have pledged their support by creating community events and building sustainable solutions in local communities and demonstrating to the world what can be done step by step, person by person, leader by leader, community by community. We can make a difference – and Cardinal Laboratories is one company demonstrating how to make the change and make a difference.
Today at Cardinal we are reducing our carbon footprint, generating solar power and returning to our grid, reclaiming and reusing gray water from our manufacturing.
Today, go to http://350.org and Join 350.org and the World in creating the next chapter of this amazing journey.
