The largest environmental movement on the planet is Earth Day. Celebrated every April 22 since 1970, the Earth Day Network is supported by over 50,000 partners in 195 countries. The mission of the movement is to bring awareness to issues that affect public health and the communities we live in, while motivating people to change the status quo around the globe. Over 1 billion people join in activities each Earth Day in an effort to make our communities and world a better, more greener place to live.

More than 20 million U.S. citizens participated in the first Earth Day which has been credited with beginning the modern environmental movement. Activities seek to use education, create public policy, and provide consumer campaigns to further public knowledge on the damages done to the planet and her inhabitants. The first Earth Day helped to pass landmark legislation such as the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Endangered Species Act. As the movement grows each year, more awareness is brought to the forefront in a range of ways so we can all help to better our planet.

At Gage Products, we have been ahead of the game when it comes to taking care of our environment. We believe wholeheartedly in sustainability efforts, whether it’s handling paint, car, and automotive chemicals the right way, to recycling and more. We even have our own environmental policy. These practices are what differentiate us in the industry.

Gage Products believes firmly in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and has practiced it for the past 25 years. Our CSR begins in the workplace and continues to the supply chain, the community, to the public policy realm, and in the marketplace. Our CSR program manages sustainability through our company mission. Since opening our doors in 1936 we have believed in earning the respect and trust of everyone we deal with, from individuals to large corporations.

Environmental stewardship has always been a priority for us at Gage Products, however, we intensified our efforts during the 1980s. We added a dedicated environmental professional to our staff, installed necessary equipment for a closed loop system for our solvent supply for automotive paint systems, and adopted our first environmental policy, which has continually evolved throughout the years.

Recycling has always been important to us so we offer award winning solutions, while helping companies to shrink their carbon footprint. We also help to reduce operating costs while improving quality and efficiency.

At Gage Products we offer closed-loop recycling and toll blending processes for automotive and general industrial paint solvents. We also supply high performance solvent blends, test fuels, calibration fluids, paint line cleaning programs and specialty product solutions for a wide range of applications.
