Lodge Cast Iron
Iron foundries have been recycling long before "being green" was cool. Here are some of Lodge's continuing environmental success stories.
In 2011, Lodge accepted the ENERGY STAR® challenge to reduce consumption by 10% over a 5 year period. Lodge Cast Iron surpassed the 10% and in less than 1 year and are continuing their efforts to monitor and reduce energy consumption at our foundry, warehouse, and offices, which has led to an increase in energy efficiency of nearly 20%!
Lodge coordinates with Marion County government to reuse over 250 tons of foundry molding sand each year for various local projects including creating a protective layer at the Marion County Landfill. This not only saves thousands of dollars, but also helps our local environment.
