Blue Imp Cares About Green

Environmental Sustainability at Blue Imp

Environmental sustainability is an important matter to Blue Imp. In fact, when it comes to green initiatives, Blue Imp got a head start. In the 1930s, long before upcycling was a concept, Blue Imp founder Simon F. Scott reclaimed the steel tubing from decommissioned steam locomotives to manufacture swings and teeter totters! That mindset continues to the present day as we continue to reduce our carbon footprint.

Leaner and Greener

Blue Imp continues to move forward with lean manufacturing initiatives to increase efficiency and reduce waste. From improving energy efficiency to using recyclable plastic wrap for shipping to ensuring that every piece of waste metal is collected for recycling, we continue taking steps to greater environmental sustainability.

Eco-Friendly Steel

Recognizing that steel is an eco-friendly material, we choose to use steel in our playground designs whenever possible and appropriate. Steel’s long lifespan, high recycle content and easy recyclability make it more sustainable than other materials. In fact, steel is the most recycled material on the planet: two thirds of all new steel comes from recycled content. Furthermore, once your steel playground equipment has reached the end of its life cycle, the steel can be easily recycled in most communities.

PVC-Free Plastics & Solvent-Free Coatings

Along with steel, Blue Imp strives to choose materials with environmental sustainability  and children’s safety in mind. Our plastic components are a food-grade polyethylene resin free of PVC, lead and other heavy metals and can be fully recycled where facilities exist. In addition, our polyester powder coatings are free of solvents and heavy metals.

Made in Canada = Greener

Because Blue Imp playground equipment is manufactured right here in Canada, our products do not have to travel the globe before they arrive in your community. The same goes for service and parts in the future. And that’s a win for both you, the customer, for the environmental sustainability.
