Sandridge Sustainability

According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), sustainable manufacturing refers to the ability to manage manufacturing operations “in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.”  Sandridge is committed to generating less waste, protecting land and workers, and ensuring responsible manufacturing practices to craft better food for your family.

Last Year Sandridge's Sustainability Efforts SAVED:

  • 14,638 Trees

  • 6,027,420 Gallons of Water

  • 3,616,452 kWh of Electricity

  • 2,928 Cubic Yards of Landfill Space

Sustainable Water Management

As the largest consumer of water in Medina County, Sandridge works diligently to use water in a way that meets current ecological, social, and economic needs without compromising the ability to meet those needs in the future.

This includes regular daily monitoring of in-flow and out-flow pH levels and screening for any potential contaminants that could harm the environment.  Sandridge works closely with the Medina County Sanitary Engineering Department to ensure that water quality and safety are a top priority.  

Energy Conservation

Sandridge has converted our production facilities and warehouses from metal halide fixtures to much more energy efficient LED and T5 high bay warehouse lighting. 

Additionally, motion sensors were included in our retrofit project resulting in as much as a 70% energy savings and producing nearly twice the light using half the energy.

Food Waste Management

Last year (2022) Sandridge sent 1,412,840 lbs. of food waste to local farms to use as feed for livestock.  Using food waste can help farmers reduce feed costs while helping Sandridge reduce disposal costs and minimize the environmental impacts of this waste.  

Sandridge also sent 2.7 million pounds of food waste to Northeast Ohio solid-waste processors for use in anaerobic digestion facilities. This cutting-edge process allows bacteria to turn food waste into useful resources such as fertilizers and bio-fuel.

Logistical Efficiency

Sandridge supports a fleet of 30 trucks that have implemented fuel-efficiency standards to minimize the impact on the environment.

Recycling & Waste Reduction

Last year (2022) Sandridge Crafted Foods sent 6,252,181 lbs (3,126.09 tons) of recyclable waste items to processing facilities across Northeast Ohio.  Recycling conserves natural resources, protects natural ecosystems, and encourages biological diversity, all of which enhance the long run sustainability of the biosphere.

Sandridge continues to increase, year-over-year, the amount of waste that is recycled rather than sent to local landfills.
