Community Outreach

Here at Studioeec, we are proud of our environmentally friendly ideology. We believe that failing to be progressive about such things makes you the opposite. That’s right, regressive. Those who act in ways to harm the environment are doing great harm to themselves, the earth and future generations, regardless of whether they realize it or not. Learn about incorporating here. 
Carbon Neutral Program
Every business, including ours produces global warming gases as a by-product of doing business. Studioeec is proud to support the effort to measure, reduce, and offset our CO2 emissions. Our Honda Element corporate vehicle along with several of our employee’s vehicles have been carbon neutralized. As a service to our clients and our planet we offer the ability to carbon neutralize your trade show booth, display and even your travel to and from shows.
Renewable Electricity? Yep, 100% of It, even the news. 
We’ve discovered that it is easy being green, making the decision to use Green e-certified 100% Renewable Electricity made possible through The Energy Cooperative. Based on Studioeec’s annual electric usage, this creates an environmental equivalent of planting 671 trees, or not driving 678,420 miles in a automobile, or permanently removing 58 cars off the road. Our electrical power now comes exclusively from wind, solar, and recovered methane landfill gas energy.
Veggie Heating Oil
Studioeec has also begun using bio-heating oil through The Energy Cooperative. Bio-heating oil is a blend of bio-diesel, made from vegetable oil, and regular heating oil. Bio-diesel burns more completely than regular heating oil and has reduced harmful air emissions. Protect your name, here it from here too. 
Green Acres
Studioeec’s 12,000 square foot design center is situated on three acres in beautiful Chester County, PA. The buildings were once the home of The Newcomen Society and were purchased in 2003. Studioeec restored the buildings maintaining the architectural integrity and exercising practical recycling of a beautiful space. The campus was also landscaped with indigenous plants and trees
“Happy Trails”
The hillside above the studioeec campus contains a 1/2 mile hiking / mountain bike path. Studioeec employees constructed the trail system using hand-tools in their free time, and built two wooden footbridges using recycled lumber. In many places, brilliant naturally occurring white quartz stones have been stacked into cairns to mark the way. Studioeec employees are encouraged to use the paths on their breaks both for exercise, as well as inspiration.
Fuel Economy
A Honda Element was recently added to our transportation fleet for making small deliveries and pickups. The Element was not just purchased for its cool look but for its environmental integrity. The Element features i-VTEC® technology for reduced emissions and higher fuel economy, and gear ratios in the 4-speed automatic transmission also do their part: They are optimized to balance driving performance, fuel economy, and low emissions. Also, an “active,” flat locking torque converter keeps it light and helps save gas. These versatile machines earned a low-emission vehicle rating (LEV-2) from the California Air Resources Board.

In addition to being green Studioeec believes in giving back to the community through donations and through education.

Red Cross + Good Work
Studioeec actively participates in donating to the American Red Cross and a local organization called Good Works. Good Works helps people in Chester County, PA maintain their homes so that they are safe and habitable.

Habitat for Humanity + Safe Harbor
Besides monetary donations to Habitat for Humanity, employees have participated over the years on building projects. Also, studioeec has donated new winter jackets and other basic necessities to Safe Harbor, a homeless shelter in West Chester, PA.

 

PA Adopt-A-Highway
Studioeec also participates in PA adopt-a-highway program. Studioeec employees maintain a stretch of Ship Road in an effort to keep the areas on either side of the roadway clear of litter.

Toys For Babies
On an international level studioeec has donated and acted as a collection station for “toys for babies” for the Susan B. Ward Foundation. This foundation donates toys to children living in Africa suffering from HIV and AIDS.

High School + College Interests
Studioeec believes in experiential education. High school and college students interested in the design world are invited to tour the design campus, ask questions, and be immersed in the daily process of the studio. Studioeec also offers internship opportunities, providing hands-on experience to aspiring college students.
