Sustain
imageIn a continuing effort to reduce our environmental impact, Mattson Design is a Carbon-Neutral firm. Electricity for equipment is purchased from Seattle City Light's Green Up program. Fixtures and furniture are purchased second-hand whenever possible, diverting them from the waste stream. Life-cycle costs are considered with all new purchases, and disposables such as ink cartridges are recycled. Heating and transportation emissions are mitigated by the purchase of carbon offsets from e-Blue Horizons. These offsets are retired, and replaced annually.
