Investing in the Future
Rhode Island Novelty is committed to environmentally responsible and sustainable business practices. We will continue to give our customers the quality products, best prices, and industry leading service they have come to expect while doing our part to make a global difference.
Our self-sustaining world headquarters produces solar energy from over 8,800 solar panels. Our facility is LEED certified (see https://new.usgbc.org for details) and ENERGY STAR certified.
Product shipping from our distribution center is now Carbon Neutral certified through a carbon credit offset program provided by SCS Global services.
We also offer many products with Green Sourcing. These items have fewer plastic components and many are manufactured with recycled and / or biodegradable materials.
With solar panels, the future is looking bright
8,800 Solar Panels
In December of 2014, Rhode Island Novelty completed the installation of one of the largest solar photovoltaic rooftop installations in Massachusetts. The 1.98 megawatt solar system will create over 2.2 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually that will provide enough energy to cover our annual electricity usage.
